John Thomas Hunt (1857-1929)

The Late Mr. John Hunt

 The funeral of Mr. John Thomas Hunt, of 46, Gloucester-road, took place quietly on Friday afternoon, a service being held at the house and the interment being in the Newtown-road Cemetery, the Rev. E.G. French officiating.

The mourners included the widow, two sons and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Leaver and |Miss Langford, Henley on Thames (nephew and nieces), Mr and Mrs. Stanley Wakefield, Compton (nephew and niece), Mrs. W.T. Hunt (daughter-in-law). 

Also present were noticed Alderman and Mrs. G. Griffin, Councillor and Mrs Arthur Chivers, Councillor W.J. Butler and Mr. F.W. Woodley (representing the Compton Pilgrims Benefit Society), Mrs. Poole, Mrs. Thorn, Messrs S. Seward, H.H. Smith, G. Owen, George Carter, Sam Smith, C. Field, M. G. Robinson and Tom Chivers. 

There was a request for no flowers, but wreaths were sent by the widow, daughter and sons, grand-children living at Newbury, Southend and Southsea, Sister Addie (Brentford), and Mr. and Mrs. Skuse. 

At a memorial service in the Primitive Methodist Church on Sunday evening, the Rev. E.G. French paid tribute to the decease’s devotion to his church, and his service of over fifty years as a local preacher, stating that it was in the villages in the circuit that Mr. Hunt’s preaching was so largely rendered.
