Arthur Halson Burland died at Niagara Falls, Ontario, General Hospital on Thursday, April 24th, 1952. He was the oldest son of Arthur and Mary A. Burland, of Grimsby and Hamilton, Bermuda.
Born in Grimsby 63 years ago, he received his early training at Grimsby Public School under the principalship of "Daddy" Dale. Later he went to Lake Lodge School and then to Trinity College, Port Hope, where in 1906 he won the school shield for the best cadet rifle shot at that college. On completion of his schooling he entered the Canadian Bank of Commerce and rose to be manager of their Birch Cliff, Ontario branch.
He left the bank to take up work with his brother, C.I. Burland, in Hamilton, Bermuda. After some years there he came to Niagara Falls, Ontario, to take over the management of the Honeymoon Cottages in that city, which position he held until his death. He was a member of the Niagara Falls Chamber of Commerce, and of Trinity College Old Boys' Association.
Of a genial though quiet nature, Mr. Burland had many friends in the Niagara Peninsula who will mourn his loss. Mr. Harold C. Johnson and the editor of this paper were old schoolmates of his. He is survived by his wife, the former Elizabeth Smalley, one son, George, of Niagara Falls, and a brother, Charles, of Hamilton, Bermuda. His only other brother, Gordon H. (Ging) died at Cork, Ireland, on Feb. 1st, 1951.
Funeral services were held in St. Andrew's Church on Saturday afternoon by Rev. E.A. Brooks. Interment was made in St. Andrew's Churchyard.
