The deceased, being a Crimean veteran, about 40 members of the Empire Veterans' Association, under Captain Daveney and Major Morrow, attended to pay respect to an old comrade.
The coffin was covered by the Union Jack, and the Crimean veterans (one of whom was Mr. W. G. Garrard, of the 18th Royal Irish veterans) acted a pall bearers. The brethren of the H.A.C.B. Society also attended the funeral, the deceased having been a member.
