I DEATH OF MR. H. DAWKIN WILLIAMS. [ Late Surveyor of Cgmore and Garw Council. We regret to state that Mr. Hugh Dawkin Williams, Yaysybwt House, Blackmill, died at his residence in Park Street, Bridgend, on Sunday, after a long illness. The deceased gentleman was a well-known figure in the Og- more and Garw Valleys, having been for 3U years engineer and surveyor to the Ogmore and Garw Urban District Council, a position from which he retired a few years ago. Mr. Dawkin Williams, who was in his 64th year, was a native of Aberdare, and was articled to Mr. Hall, surveyor to the Aberdare District Coun- cil. He removed to the Ogmore and Garw dis- trict 33 years ago. He was responsible for im- provements carried out in that district over a long period when the district was developing from a semi-rural into a thickly-populated in- dustrial area owing to the coal developments, and he supervised important schemes of sewer- age. Yr. Williams married Miss Thomas, Llandovery, who predeceased him by 31 years. There are two sons, Mr. J. M. Williams, who is serving with the Army Ordnance Corps in Egypt, and Mr. Windsor Williams, solicitor, Neath. Mr. Dawkin Williams recently re- moved to Bridgend.
