We regret to record the death of Mr T Colley, M.R.C.V.S.L., of Conisborough which took place at his residence on Sunday morning last

About eight months ago Mr Colley at the misfortune to lose his wife. This sad event preyed very much on his mind and health, and he never seemed to recover from the blow.

On Friday last severe attack of haemorrhage, notwithstanding the unremitting attentions of his medical adviser Doctor Hills, death intervened as stated.

Five children mourned the death of deceased, who throughout the oldest it was well known and much respected.

In the course of his practice he constantly visited various villages in the neighbourhood, and those formed a large circle of friends, who were attracted by his genial disposition.

In all matters Mr Colley was most conscientious and at all times ready to assist the poor, and in other ways cultivated acts of kindness.

The deceased to commence a practice as a veterinary surgeon in Conisbrough about eight years ago, was born in 1844, and therefore was in his 45th year.

The funeral took place on Wednesday at the Parish Church, a large number of relatives and friends been present.
