CRADDOCK Decima - Ledbury
It is with feeling of the deepest regret that we this week record the death of Mrs Decima CRADDOCK, wife of Mr James Ernest CRADDOCK, of Highbridge and the Hazle Mill, Ledbury, which took place with startling suddeness at Highbridge on Friday night last, at the age of 42 years. Mrs CRADDOCK had enjoyed uniformly good health, with the exception of an attack of rheumatic fever some years ago, though of late she had complained of feeling run down, but there was nothing in her condition to cause alarm. On Friday she appeared to be in her usual health, but in the afternoon she had a sudden seizure. Dr McKEAN was called in, but despite all that medical skill could do, she passed away as stated.
Mrs CRADDOCK was the youngest daughter of the late Mr George NUTT, of Sawberry Hill Farm, Bromyard, and has been married to Mr CRADDOCK over 20 years. She leaves a family of four children, the eldest of whom is a daughter of 17 years of age and the other three children are boys, the youngest being seven years of age. Mr CRADDOCK is well known in the district, and the utmost sympathy has been expressed with him and his family in their sudden and deep bereavement. He is Deputy-Master of the Ledbury and District Lodge of the National Conservative League, a member of Ledbury Urban District Council, and the Ledbury Rural Parish Council, and a member of the Committee of the Ledbury Ploughing Society.

DEATH AND FUNERAL OF DR. JOHN TANNER
We regret to announce the death, which occurred suddenly from heart failure of Dr. TANNER, of 8. Glenmore Road, Belsize Park, and formerly of Queen Anne Street, S. W., which saw event, took place in his 79th year on the 8th inst., to the great sorrow of a large circle of friends, by whom he was held in the highest regard and esteem for his gentility and kindly disposition. Dr. TANNER, who formerly practised in Ledbury with his uncle, the late Dr. John TANNER, and was well known and highly respected in Herefordshire and Gloucester circles had been totally blind for the past five years, and was the author of many medical books which are now recognised as standard works. The holder of several degrees, he had been consulting physician to many hospitals and institutions, and had been a long and ardent worker, especially to the Farringdon General Dispensary and Lying-in Charity, to which he was honorary consulting physician. The committee of this institution hastily convened a meeting to pass a vote of condolence with the family, of Dr. TANNER. An old member of St. Andrew's University Club, he had often occupied the chair at its, meetings and functions - a position only bestowed upon eminent and well-known men. The after-dinner speeches of Dr. TANNER were always a source of attraction to all present, his great knowledge tempered with wit being most interesting. He entered the livery of the Barbers' Company in 1877 and was admitted to the Court in 1898, being master in H. M. King Edward VII.'s Coronation year (1901). He was presented at Court by the late Sir Charles Hutton GREGORY. Dr. TANNER formerly was a very active politician and for several years was chairman of the Southwark Conservative Association, being invited to contest the district in the Parliamentary interest on no less than three occasions, which however, was declined. It is generally acknowledged though that the return of Sir Edward CLARKE as M.P. for Southwark was only brought about through the influence and powerful advocacy of Dr. John TANNER. He was also for many years a political colleague of Sir William Purdie TRELOAR, Bart.
 
The funeral took place on Saturday, at St Marylebone Cemetery after a service at St. Peter's Church, Belsize Park, conducted by the Rev. Dr. HACKETT. The hymn sung was "Abide with Me." and at the conclusion of the service the Nunc Dimittis was rendered by the choir. Mr. L. D. MARSDON presided at the organ.
 
The assembly included Mr. Gordon TANNER (son), Mrs. A. P. CRABB (daughter), Mr. A. P. CRABB (son-in-law), Mrs. WILTSHIRE, Mr. C. TANNER, Mr. A. OSBORNE, Mr. MORTIMER, Mrs. THORN, Mrs. BRISBANE, Mrs. OSBORNE, Mr. R. T. HABGOOD, Mr. and Mrs. D. Percy BENJAMIN, Mr. T. H. WILLIAMS, Mrs. TILLEY, Mrs. LIAG (Ling), Mrs. SMART, Mr. GILL etc. The Barbers' Company was represented by Sir John TWEEDY, F. R. C. P. (Past Master), Mr. MANN CROSA, Mr. E. W. BURR, and Mr. SONNETHAL (Past Masters).
 
The choice floral tributes were sent by, amongst others, Son Gordon, Mr. and Mrs. A. P. CRABB, Mrs. BLUETT, Mrs. TILLEY, MR. R. P. HAPEOOD, the Misses. M. and H. TANNER, Mr. Robert TANNER, Mr. C. S. TANNER, Miss. BARTON, Miss. BROOKER, Mr. G. TANSYE, Mr. and Mrs. OBORNE, Mr. and Mrs. LI??ES, Mr. and Mrs. T. WILLIAMS, Earl and Countess of Mexborough, Miss.
