DEATH OF MRS. HAY-GORDON. « We regret to record the decease of Mrs. Anne McKerrol Hay-Gordon, The Hayes, Malpas, which took place at her residence on Friday last. The deceased lady had been ailing for some considerable time, but since retiring to Malpas a few months since had somewhat recovered her usual health until about a week ago, when she unfortunately caught a chill. Acute pneumonia supervened. The deceased lady was the widow of the late Mr. Adam Hay- Gordon, of Avochie, Aberdeenshire, and Mazen and Ardmeallie, Banffshire, who died in April, 1872. Her connection with Malpas dates from the time when the late rector (the Rev. the Hon. W. T. Kenyon) came to the then Higher Rectory, Malpas, which was in November, 1873, and during these many years the deceased lady was ever mindful of the welfare of those among whom she lived. The funeral took place on Monday. The coffin was of plain polished oak, with brass fittings, having an internal coffin of cedar wood lined with satin. The plate bore the inscrip- tion :—' Anne McKerrol Hay-Gordon; bora June 5th, 1821; died September 3rd, 1897.' The first portion of the ceremony was conducted in the parish church, the solemn service being rendered chorally. The customary portion of the Scriptures was read by the Rev. W. Wyatt, after which the beautiful hymn, On the resurrection morning, soul and body meet again,' y r, was impressively sung by the congregation. The cortege formed in the following order upon leaving the sacred edifice for the cemetery :— The church choir, in their surplices, the Rev. F. E. B. Wale, the Rev. M. J. Ransome, the Rev. the Hon. A. R. Parker, the Rev. W. Wyatt; body, carried by twelve bearers. Then followed the mourners, Mr. Gordon Kenyon, grandson; the Rev. the Hon. W. T. Kenyon and Mrs. Adam Hay-Gordon, son-in-law and daughter-in-law; Captain Forbes and the Hon. Miss G. Kenyon, the Rev. C. Wolley-Dod and Hon. Miss H. Kenyon, Mr. A. Oliver (S.S.C.) and Miss Macaulay, Mr. S. H. Sandbach and Dr. Jordison, Mr. Wiliding Jones and Sons (2). Lieut.-Col. Barnston and Mr. R. L. Greenshields, Nurse Pender and Mr. H. Mercer, Mr. W. P. Huxley, Mr. Geo. Boughey, Mr. G. Lewis and Mr. M. H. Danily, the Hon. Mrs. A. R. Parker and Mrs. H. Edwards, Miss Mercer and Miss Ravenscroft, Mr. A. D. Callcott, Mr. W. Gill. Following these were several carriages containing Mrs. Willding Jones and the Misses Cox, the Hon. Mrs. E. Kenyon and Mrs. Rasbotham, Mrs. Wolley-Dod. A carriage was also sent by Lord Kenyon. The service at the cemetery was taken by the Rev. the Hon. A. R. Parker (rector), and the Rev. M. J. Ransome, in the presence of a large and sympathetic gatherin g at the graveside. Mr. J. R. Hay-Gordon, the deceased lady's son, and Col. W. Brown, her brother, were un- avoidably prevented fram being present. Miss Neil, a respected and faithful servant of 24 years' service, was also absent through illness. Mr. F. Hamlyn, an old friend, joined the funeral at the graveside.
