Full Text

A Grimsby resident of many years passed away on Thursday last at his home, Robinson Street North, in the person of Herbert E. Thornhill. A native of Yeovil, Somersetshire, England, he had lived in Hamilton and district for a number of years, where he had carried on business as a jeweller on James Street North, afterwards operating a jewellery store in Simcoe for 15 years.

He is survived by his wife, the former Clara Whittaker; a daughter, Mrs. William J. Farrell, of Grimsby, and a grandson, Billy Farrell.

In his earlier years Mr. Thornhill was an accomplished organist, and well known in local musical circles. He had acted as organist for Acacia Lodge, A.F. & A.M., to which he belonged, on many occasions, and played the organ at the opening of the original St. John's Presbyterian Church (now Trinity United Church).

Rev. J.A. Ballard conducted the service at the family residence, 30 Robinson street South, on Sunday afternoon, interment being made at Queen's Lawn Cemetery. The pallbearers were Solon Burgess, Fred Burgess, H.C. Johnson, Roy Farrell, W. Kelterborn and Clyde Harrod.
