TREVETHIN CHURCHYARD. HE Vicar and Cburchwardens of Trevethin again find it necessary respectfully to call T the attention of the Public to the fact, that for obvious reasons it is inconvenient to receive FUNBRALS at a Later Hour than 4 o'clock p.m. during the Months of November, December, Janurary, and February, or than 6 o'clock p.m. during the remaining Months of the Year. Persons haying the charge of Funerals are earnestly desired to co-operate with the Vicar and Churchwardens in giving enectto this Regu- lation, which, it is hoped, will conduce to the public convenience, and to the more decent per- formance of the Burial Rite. In no case, where pntcticable, should ?M than 24 Hoara' Notice of Burial be given to the Sex- tons. CHARLES E. T. GRIFFITH, Vicar. ALFRED A. WILLIAMS, WILLIAM HA8KIN8. Churchwarden. Nw.25th.l891.
