Full Text

One of the largest funerals seen here in some years was that of Thomas C. Hewitt on Wednesday last.

The most impressive services at the house and grave were conducted by the Rev. J. Allan Ballard, rector of St. Andrew's, who opened the service at the house by reading the beautiful Anglican service.

The floral offerings were very numerous, and one piece most noticeable was a blanket of flowers, that completely covered the bier. This was from the family of the deceased. All the nephews and nieces of the deceased were present at the funeral, also Mr. and Mrs. Harry Hewitt of Brantford; Mr. and Mrs. Logan Waterous, also of Brantford; George Bancroft, Guelph, besides a great many relatives from Chicago and the west.

The pallbearers were: Harry Griffith, John Bridgeman, E. Bridgeman, Fred Bancroft, Harry Hewitt and Logan Waterous. The impressive ceremony closed, and the funeral cortege filed out of the house to the moving cadence of the beautiful song, Abide With Me, rendered very beautifully by Miss Norma Hermiston.

Interment took place in Queen's Lawn Cemetery, where a great throng of citizens, relatives and friends paid their last respects to the deceased, whom they respected so highly.
