The Late Mr. G. Walker, J.P., of Conisborough.

Preaching at the Conisborough Parish Church, yesterday morning, the Vicar (the Rev. W. A. Strawbridge) referred to the loss the parish had sustained by the death of the late Mr. Godfrey Walker, J.P., whom he described as Conisborough’s foremost citizen and Churchman.

They remembered Mr. Godfrey’s many-sided activities and services to Church and State, and his numberless acts of kindness and generosity to the people of his native place.

On Saturday morning, on the magistrates taking their seats at the West Riding Court, Doncaster, Mr. W. Warde-Aldam, the presiding magistrate, referred to the death of Mr. G. Walker, J.P., of Conisborough, and said that before commencing business they ought express their great regret at the loss they had sustained in the- death of their companion and colleague. They had been associated in magisterial and other work for many, years, and, greatly deplored his death.

Mr. W. Baddiley, the senior solicitor practising in that court, made few sympathetic remarks.
