COSGROVE. FUNERAL. At mid-day on Saturday the remains of the late Mrs. Ellen Lancaster, were interred in Cosgrove Cemetery. Mrs. Lancaster was a native of Old Stratford, where she resided till about six years ago, when she went to live at Buckingham, where she died rather suddenly on Thursday, July 6th. The deceased was ell-known in the neighbourhood, and highly respected, and much sympathy is expressed with the daughters in their heavy bereavement. The service in church was conducted by the Rev. H. N. C. Hewson, rector of Cosgrove, and at the graveside by the Rev. P. P. Golding, vicar of Buckingham. The grave was lined with moss and ferns by Mr. and Mrs. Hutton. The coffin, which was of oak, with brass furniture, was made by Mr. Marshal of Buckingham, and bore the inscription; "Ellen Lancaster, died July 6th. 1899, aged 59 years." It was covered with beautiful floral tributes, sent by Edith and Kathleen (daughters), Alderman H. Bright, (Leamington), Mr. and Mrs. Thorne (London), brother and sister, Mr. G. Thorne (brother), Mrs. Thorne, Mr. Edwin Woodford, Mr. and Mrs. Bird, Miss K. Bird, Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Reeve, Mr. and Mrs. Townsend (Water Stratford), Edith and Kitty Horwood, Mr. and Mrs. Thorne, and other relatives, and one of the pupils at the school at Buckingham. The mourners were Miss Lancaster, Miss K. Lancaster, Mr. Thorne, Mr. Athol Thorne, Dr. De'Ath. Mrs. and the Misses Bird, Mr. E. Woodford, Miss Thomas. Dr. Thorne, of London (brother), owing to a mistake in the railway arrangements arrived too late to attend the funeral.
