Death of Mr James of Quorn - Water bailiff for 30 years

Loughborough Echo 29th April 1938

Mr. William James, well known in fishing circles, died on Tuesday night, aged 74 years. Mr. James, who had practised as a painter in Quorn for about 46 years, was born in Loughborough where he will be buried on Saturday.

He was water bailiff for the Trent Fishery Board for 30 years, and was a member and founder of the Old Quornian Angling Association, of which he was for some years secretary.

During the Great War he served in the Reserve, and had recently been made a life member of the Quorn British Legion, who flag at the War Memorial flew at half-mast for the first time when news of his death was made known.

Mr. James kept his golden wedding last year, and leaves a wife and several children.
