WALTER JAMES BLACKET

The Late Mr. Walter J. Blacket.— The interment of the mortal remains of Mr. M. J. Blacket, whose death was reported in last week's paper, took place the Newtown Road Cemetery on Saturday afternoon, the coffin being deposited in the family vault. The deceased’s residence Porchester Road is close the cemetery, and the coffin was wheeled on hand-bier to the southern entrance, the mourners walking in procession.

 

The burial service was conducted the Rev. J. W. Harford, pastor of the Congregational Church (with which Mr. Blacket had long been closely associated), and prayer was offered by the Rev. J. Neville. Before the conclusion of the service Mr. Harford delivered a short address, pointing to the splendid record of faithful services performed by the deceased, and emphasising the fact that his death was in reality no cause for weeping but rather should act as an incentive to them to emulate the high example which Mr. Blacket had always set. The choir from the Congregational Church was present, and led the singing the hymn “When the day of toil is done”.

 

The widow was not present at the obsequies, and the mourners were; Mrs. Collins (daughter), Mr. E. R. Blacket and Mr. F. Blacket (brothers), Mr. Stephen Wickham (brotherin-law), Miss Wickham (niece), Mr. J. R. Wickham and Mr. R. Wickham (nephews), Mr. T. W. Turner and Mr. S. E. West.
