The military funeral of the late Gunner William Taylor took place on Thursday, April 26th at Idle Parish Church. Gunner Taylor, who was 30 years of age, was a Kitchener Volunteer and went to France in June 1915. He was gassed in July 1916 and was subsequently brought to Epsom War Hospital. Here he remained until December 8th last when he was brought to his home, 23 Hall Lane, Windhill. Despite all the tender care and loving nursing of his mother and sister, it was impossible to combat the gangrene consumption which had set in and after a long and painful wait, he passed away on April 22nd. Needless to say the keenest and most heartfelt sympathy is felt by the many friends of the family and the public generally in the sad loss and still sadder circumstances of the death of Gunner Taylor.
