Funeral of Mrs. J. H. Heap at Worsthorne.

The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon at St John’s Church, Worsthorne, of Mrs. James H. Heap, of the Bay Horse Hotel, Worsthorne, whose death was reported in our Wednesday issue. The home service and the service at St John’s Church were taken by the vicar at Worsthorne, the Rev. H.

Among the many mourners were representatives from the Burnley and District Licensed Victuallers Association and also from the Harmony (Todmorden) Lodge of Freemasons, of which lodge Mrs. Heap’s late husband was a Past Master and a Provincial Officer. The coffin was carried to the church by the following bearers: Messrs H.L. Whit-? , A. Sagar, Tom Whittam, Councillors A. H. Pickles, H. B. Duerden and G. E. Benyon.

As the funeral party entered the church, Mr. A. E. Bridge, a former organist of Worsthorne Parish Church, played on the organ “O, rest in the Lord,” and also accompanied the service, which included the singing of the hymn “Abide with Me,” which was a favourite of the deceased.
