Funeral of Mrs. A. E. Fur si and' Respect for Mrs. Albert E. Fur^land and sympathy for her husband, who has been !eft wifeless with seven young children, was expressed on Sunday in a very numerously- attended funeral. It left 24, Mansel-street, Mrs. Fursiand's residence, about three o'clock. First came the choir, Sunday School, and other repre- sentatives of York-place Baptist Chapsl, then the members of the Swansea Temper- ance Band, ill uniform, but without their instruments: Deputations from various chapels, market officials, stall-holders, and other friends preceded on foot the minis- ter's carriage, which contained Rev. Cas- nc.dyn Rhys (York-place), Rev. D. Williams (Memorial), and Dr. Rhys Davies. Deacons of York-place Chapel went be fore the wreath-covered Washington car, which held the coffin of polished oak, with heavy brass fittings, and heavy brass plate, bearing the inscription; "Sarah Ann Furs-| land died July 27th aged 36 years." The first mourning coach, from which the sentitive onlookers turned away in sadness, carried Mr. Albert E. Fursland and his seven children, one or two of them quite too young to realise their loss. In the second carriage were three of Mr. Fursiand's brothers and their wives:—Mr. and Mrs. S. J. Fursland, Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Fursland, and Mr. and Mrs. John Fursland. The third carriage contained Mr. Walter Fursland and his son, Mrs. Green, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Taylor, Master Clifford Furs- land the fourth, Mr. Henry Taylor, Mrs Thomas, Mr. David Griffiths, and Miss Nellie Fursland; the fifth. Messrs. Davies and Slocombe, Master A. E. Fursland, and Miss M. Fursland; the sixth, Mr. James Taylor and family; the seventh, Mr. and Mrs. Reed. About forty other carriages followed, each with their complement of Mrs. Furs- iand's friends. Halting at York-place Chapel on the way to the cemetery, an impressive funeral ser- vice wa.s conducted by Dr. Williams and Rev. Casnodyn Rhys. The last minister also conducted the service at the graveside Arrangements were carried out without the least friction by Messrs. G. and F. Woo. sfcwyUatawi rtiwut
