OBITUARY

 

MR. RICHARD JAMES, NEWTOWN

 

It is with regret that we have to record the death of Mr Richard James of Croesawdy, Newtown. Mr James was in his 84th year.

He was of a kind and genial disposition, and was held in high regard in Newtown and district.

He was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs Humphrey James, Tregynon, and was one of a family of six sons and four daughters, and had been associated all his life with the district.

In his youth he went to London to the tailoring firm known as Pooles', and remained there until 1863.

During his stay in London he joined Foresters' Lodge of which he remained a member all his life.

Returning to Newtown he began a tailoring business on his own account in Market Street, and this he carried on very successfully, his skill I business earning for him a high reputation.

In 1916 the business was converted into a private company, of which his son, Mr Harry James, is in charge.

In 1866, Mr James married Annie, the daughter of the late Mr and Mrs W. Roberts, coachbuilder, Penygloddfa, and she predeceased him in August 1920, a loss which greatly affected Mr James. They had a family of 12 children, three of whom died when infants, while the eldest son died in America. He is survived by the remaining five sons and three daughters.

Mr James was a churchman, and regularly attended St Mary's Parish Church having attended the services in the old church before the present one was built. He took an active interest in all church matters and was prominent in movements connected with it. He had been Churchwarden with successive rectors for many years, and when declining health made him relinquish the duties he had the satisfactoi7on of seeing his son Mr Harry James carry on the work.

He was also a manager of the National School Board and of the Board School Board, and was a trustee of Griffiths' Charity, in which he was greatly interested.

In politics he was a Conservative, and although he did not take a prominent part in local party affairs, his services to the party were numerous.

He had long been connected with the Cedewain Lodge of Freemasons, and on the death of John Daniel, he became the "father" of the Lodge, and at his death was the oldest member. He joined the Lodge in May 1884 and passed though all the chairs, and was treasurer and charity representative of the Lodge for many years. His long services to Freemasonry were recognised by the Provincial Grand Lodge for North Wales, and was made P.P.G.S.B., and in 1911 P.P.G.J.W. In addition he was a member of the Supreme Grand and Royal Chapter of Royal Arch Masons, having been admitted to the Welshpool Chapter on February 2nd 1888, and in this he had also held numerous offices, prominent amongst them being those of treasurer and charity representative.

He was for many years a member of the Board of Management and of the House Committee of Montgomery County Infirmary, and took an active interest in the welfare of the institution.

He was always in the forefront in any charitable movement.

 

THE FUNERAL

 

The Funeral was at the Parish Church on Wednesday afternoon, and it was attended by a large and representative gathering of townspeople.

The members of the Cedewain Lodge and Welshpool Royal Arch Chapter of Free Masons assembled at the Masonic Temple, and proceeded to Croesawdy, where they joined the cortege.

The service at the house was conducted by the Rev J. J. Latimer Jones, B.D.

Inside the church the hymn "Now the labourer's task is o'er" was sung by the congregation, and the choir of which his son had been a member for many years. The prayers were read by the Rev Thomas Jones, Bettws, and Canon R. Evan Jones, M.A., R.D., Llanllwchaiarn, read the lesson. The Rev C. D. Roberts also took part in the service with Mr. A. J. Bibb (son-in-law of the deceased and organist of the Church) played Chopin's "Funeral March" and the "Dead March" in "Saul".

The committal sentences were uttered by the Rector and were followed by the Masonic oration, delivered by the Very Worshipful Brother, Canon E. O. Jones, M.A., R.D., of Llanidloes, Past Grand Chaplain of England, and afterwards he deposited the lambskin badge of the Freemasons in the grave. Sprigs of acacia were dropped in the grave by the Freemasons present.

The bearers were four of the oldest members of the Cedewain Lodge, Messrs C. W. Norton, H. E. Breese, A. T. Benbow and Major W. F. Richards, Abermule.

THE LATE MRS. JAMES, NEWTOWN

 

Newtown has lost one of its oldest and most highly respected inhabitants by the death which occurred on Saturday, of Mrs. James, wife of Mr. Richard James, of Croesawdy.

Mrs. James was the daughter of the late Mr. Wm. Roberts, coachbuilder, of Penygloddfa, and was in her 76th year.

She was the oldest member of Newtown Parish Church and took an active interest in the Mothers' Union. She was also deeply interested in the work of the local Nursing Association, and was for many years honorary treasurer of the local habitation of the Primrose League.

She was one of the most useful and energetic workers for good in the district and her death will be greatly felt by the poor, to whom she was always a sympathetic friend.

She is survived by her husband, who is 82 years of age. She had had 12 children, eight of whom are still living.

Mrs. James had been in failing health for over two years, having suffered from neuritis. Two months ago she had a stroke, and had since been confined to bed.

The funeral, a public one, took place at Newtown Parish Church on Wednesday, interment being made in the family vault beside the children who predeceased her.

The officiating clergy were the Rev. J. J. Latimer Jones, Canon R. Evan Jones, Rev Thomas Jones of Bettws and the Rev Evans-Hughes of Dolfor.

Among the large company that attended were the members of the Cedewain Lodge of Freemasons, who attended as a body, Mr. James being the oldest mason in the town, and most of the leading business and other residents of the town.

The pall bearers were all Freemasons, Messrs C. W. Norton, A. T. Benbow, W. D. Crofts, and F. Bennett Lloyd.
