Charles Adams's funeral 1935

Loughborough Echo - 28th June 1935

The funeral of Mr Charles Adams, who died on Friday last, aged 78 years, took place on Monday, the service being conducted by Canon Rumsey. The principal mourners were Mrs H A Cox and Miss E Adams (daughters), Mr H Cox (son-in-law), Mrs Marrit (sister-in-law), Misses Snowdon, Mr and Mrs Hillyer, and Mr S Scattergood.

The boys and girls of the senior Church of England School attended to the number of about 50, accompanied by Mr Mervyn Jones, headmaster, Miss Horspool and Miss Sutton. The Canon spoke a few words referring to the 31 years in which Mr Adams was headmaster of the village school, and of his devoted work in social and church matters, he having been Sunday school superintendent, chorister, churchwarden and lay reader. The bearers were four old pupils, Messrs C Joiner, G R Horspool, J Martin and C Hardy. Wreaths were sent by the staff and scholars of Quorn Senior and Infant Schools, the Church Room Committee, Quorn Church Sunday School, and two wreaths were sent by his old scholars.
