 By the death of Mr. William Thomas P. Carr, of the Market-place, Newbury, the town loses one of its keenest sportsmen and a well-known tradesman.  He passed away at his home on Friday at the age of 56, but had been in failing health for about the last five years. For 18 months he had been in a Nursing Home at Silchester under the care of Dr. Daly, but had returned to Newbury about three years ago. Since then he had had to remain mostly indoors.

 A native of Newbury, Mr. Carr was employed by the late Mr. James Tufnail before setting up in business himself, and it was about twenty years ago that he branched out as a wholesale and retail tobacconist.  As a sportsman he will best be remembered for his connection with golf and billiards. Mr. Carr was one of the band who revived the Crookham Golf Club shortly after the War and was elected at that time as the Chairman, a position he held until his as death.  He also belonged to the Newbury and District Golf Club, and won cups in competitions at both courses.  He was a very good billiards player and carried off numerous prizes, among them being a clock, by his skill with the cue, before his eyesight failed him; in fact in his day he was one of the best players in the town.

 Mr. Carr was also a bowler of some repute and played for one of the Newbury cricket teams.  In addition he was an excellent swimmer.  His brother, Mr. Jack Carr, played football for the old Union Jack team and Newbury.  Mr. Tom Carr was a member of both the Liberal and Guildhall Clubs, and retired from business about five years ago, He will be affectionately remembered by the inmates of the Newbury Poor Law institution, for he was one of the most generous supporters of the " N.W.N." Two T.s Fund.  He inaugurated the coloured clay pipes competition, for which he acted as judge, and personally attended the Institution on Christmas Day to present the prizes he had given.

 Mr. Carr leaves a wife and five children, three boys and two girls.

 The funeral took place on Monday at the Old Cemetery, Newtown-road, the Rev. S. C. Robinson, curate at St. Nicholas` Church, officiating.  The mourners were : Mrs. Carr (widow), Messrs. V. T. Carr, R. H. Carr and C. I. Carr (sons), the Misses V. E. M. Carr and Joan Carr (daughters), Mr. W. Rogers and Miss A. Pearce.  Among others noticed present were Messrs. W. Fabry, E. J. Batten, F. Staunton, G. Ford, Mrs. Bert Austin, Messrs. G. E. Willis and A. B. Williams (representing the " N.W.N." Two T.s Fund).   Mr. S H. Pavier represented the Tunbridge Wells Equitable Friendly Society, of which Mr. Carr was an original member.

 Wreaths were sent by :  Loving Wife and Children; Jessie; Alice; Jim and Hilda; Miriam; Walter, Alf and Marion Rogers; Mr. arid Mrs. W. Fabry; Misses E. Street and D. Rowell; Mr. and Mrs. Jock Rovers; Mr. and Mrs. B. Austin and Mr. and Mrs. J.
