COLWALL NEWS. I DANCE. I On Thursday, April 16, a dance will be held I at the Hill Institute, Upper Col wall, from I 8 p.m. till 2 a.m. DEATH AND FUNERAL OF MR THOS. II GUNNELL. It is with regret that we announce the death of Mr Thos Gunnell, of Glenwood Villa, Upper Colwall, an old and respected parishioner, which occured on Friday last at Weston-super-Mare at the age of 84 years. It was the custom of the deceased gentleman to spend the winter at Weston, where a more congenial climate suited his health. The late Mr Gunnell was for a gBeat number of years gardener to the late General and Lady Willmot, of Rosebank, Malvern, but retired several years ago as a result of failing health. He was also for years a bell-ringer at the Abbey Church, Great Malvern, and also in the time of the Rectorship of the Rev G M Custance, of Colwall, of whom he was a personal friend, occasionally rang at the Colwall Parish Church. The late Mr Gunnell often related interesting episodes of the days when he was a young man. His wife pre-deceased him some 16 years ago. The funeral took place at the Parish Church on Tuesday afternoon, the remains being brought from Weston by a motor hearse. The Rector (Rev Dr Harris) officiated. The chief mourners were :—Mr and Mrs A G Gunnell (son and daughter-in-law), Mr Jim Gunnell, Mr Henry Gunnell, Mr Charles Gunnell, Mr George Gunnell (sons), Mrs Price (daughter), Mr and Mrs Perrin (daughter and son-in-law), Miss Gunnell (daughter), Mr and Mrs J R Allen (daughter and son-in-law), Mr and Mrs S H Roberson (daughter and son-in-law), Mrs Fletcher (grand-daughter), and Mr Fletcher, Mrs Bunn and Miss Hodges (nieces), Mr T Hodges (nephew), Mr and Mrs Hodges (brother and sister-in-law). Miss Twynam, Mr John Morris and others were also present. The bearers were Messrs W Grundy, H W Allen, G Peacey and W Treherne. Members of the Abbey Bell-ringers, assisted by the Colwall band, rang a muffled peal after the service. A large number of floral tributes were received.
