MRS. MARGARET THORNTON
The internment took place yesterday afternoon in Haggate Baptist churchyard, of Mrs. Margaret Thornton, 148, Burnley-road, Harle Syke, whose death occurred on Tuesday. Born in Burnley Lane 54 years ago, she was well known for her genial disposition, and her loss will be keenly felt by a wide circle of friends. During her earlier years she had been employed as a weaver at Halstead’s and Coronation mills. She had also been identified with Elm Methodist Church prior to going to Briercliffe six years ago. She leaves a widower and one son. Mr. W. E. Thornber said prayers at the home and also officiated at the graveside. J. Atkinson carried out the arrangements.
