Death of Mrs Cracknell – Much sympathy will be extended to Mr Thomas Cracknell of “St Michael’s” Church Road, Heene, in the great bereavement he has sustained in the death of his wife.

The funeral will take place at Heene Cemetery on Friday. Mrs Cracknell and her husband have been highly respected inhabitants of the neighbourhood for many years past, having resided at Broadwater prior to their occupation of St Michael’s.
