James Clements’ Funeral 1934 - Index to Names

James Clements was appointed Charter (ie first) Mayor of Brentford & Chiswick in 1932. He was a loved and respected man and this shines through in the account of his funeral in ’The County of Middlesex Independent’ dated Saturday December 29th 1934.

The article has headings:

  • Charter Mayor’s Funeral
  • Impressive Scenes at Church and Graveside
  • Many Magnificent Floral Tributes
  • Brentford Mourns a Well-Loved Friend
and starts ’Christmas Eve was a time of mourning for the town of Brentford, for on that day beloved "Jim" Clements was laid to rest.’

The article continues to describe the service, the procession via the High Street to Ealing and Old Brentford Cemetery, then lists

  • the chief mourners
  • others present at the church and at the graveside
  • floral tributes

Tributes followed by Alderman Harry Davis, Sir William Barber (Magistrate, Brentford Police Court) then a summary of his life and achievements by "Onlooker".
