A Large Funeral
A LARGE FUNERAL
On Wednesday, one of the largest funerals ever witnessed in this neighbourhood occurred here. The funeral was that of Mr John Williams, grocer and draper, eldest son of Mr David Williams, of the Cardiff Castle Inn, who died at the early age of 33 years, leaving a widow and two children. The family connection being large, it was computed that the procession reached nearly half-a-mile in length.
