FUNERAL OF MR. BRADLEY. On Monday afternoon the remains of Mr Anthony Bradley, of "Terfyn." were interred in Prestatyn Churchyard, the funeral being exceptionally largely attended. Among those present was a considerable gathering of employees of the late gentleman's firm, together with representatives of the Traveller's Lodge of Freemasons, the Grosvenor Chapter of Mark Masons (of both of which Mr Bradley was a member), and several of the local Freemasons, who together with representatives of the Prestatyn Constitutional Club lined the path from the gate to the Church as the remains were being borne from the hearse. Mr Banks (Mr Bradley's partner) was among the principal mourners, and the funeral was also attended by many representatives of various organizations in Chester of which Mr Bradley was a supporter, and several of the principal residents and tradesmen in Prestatyn in addition to members of the Urban Council. The officiating clergy were the Rev. O. J. Davies, M.A. (Vicar), and Rev. A. Gray Jones, B.A., and the seivice in church- which was attended by a large number of the general public.-was a very impressive one. "Rock of Ages" was sung as an opening hymn, and at the close the hymn Peace, perfect peace was sung, Dr Keighley playing the Dead March at the end of this portion of the service. The grave had been lined with flowers and ferns by Mr J E Kelly, and after the remains had been lowered, the Freemasons (in accord- ance with their.custom, dropped on to the coffin an acacia leaf which each had been wearing.

The late Mr Bradley belonged to a Lancashire family, and about 25 years ago he succeeded to the clothiers business commenced by his brother some years previously. The business gradually extended, and now the firm has branches in many parts of Wales, Lancashire, Yorkshire, and the Midlands, and this year the century of branches was passed, making it the second largest of its kind in the country. In 1893 Mr Bradley entered into partnership with Mr S. Clarke, who is now in China, and Mr J. Banks, Prestatyn, and from that time he himself took no active part in the management of the business. Mr Clarke left the business 18 months ago, and Mr Banks is now the sole surviving partner. Mr Bradley was fond of athletics and sport generally, and was a very popular member of several organizations in Chester, as well as a good supporter of the Prestatyn Golf Club, and had he lived he intended to start a bow- ling club here. He leaves a widow, but no family.
