Transcription of obituary published in the Primitive Methodist Magazine by E.J.H.

Annie Tristram, the beloved wife of Mr. Harry Tristram, of Bradford IV. Circuit, passed to her reward on June 10th, and was interred in our Daisy Hill Chapel Cemetery on June 14th. Born thirty-five years ago, at Brand Hill, all her life she was associated with Primitive Methodism, and for nearly a quarter of a century with our Manningham Church. 

She took charge of the Junior C.E., having previously been leader of the Catechumen Class, and was most earnestly devoted to her little charges. Her work was taken cheerfully and yet always seriously. It was the same with her Sunday School work. For twelve years she was a member of the choir and for over ten years went regularly to sing at the Bradford Infirmary. She was instrumental, with others, in carrying on the Sunday evening services for the children, and in many other branches of church activity she was interested, eager and strenuous. 

Married less than five years. ago, her last illness was of eighteen months’ duration. The memorial service was conducted on June 22nd.


Annie was born abt1878 at Onibury, Shropshire, to parents Richard Bawcombe, a general labourer (1881), and Elizabeth Richards.

Before her marriage Annie worked in a cotton factory (1901).

She married Harry Tristram (1879-1940), a bricklayer, on 17 October 1908 at Heaton Road PM Chapel, Bradford.

Annie died on 10 June 1913 at Manningham, Yorkshire.
