1909: Death of Mrs. Nelson

Much regret was felt in the village on Saturday when it became known that Mrs. Nelson, the wife of Mr. Isaac Newton, of Helmside, had passed away, after undergoing an operation at the new County Hospital at Kendal. Mrs. Nelson was 51 years of age, and had lived at Oxenholme for the last 25 years. The interment took place at Natland on Tuesday, and was attended by a large body of relatives and friends. A staff of railwaymen acted as bearers, and in church the choir sang “Now the labourer’s task is o’er” and “O God our help in ages past.” The service, which was of impressive character, was conducted by the vicar, the Rev. E. J. Miller. Wreaths were sent by the Oxenholme railway staff, the Oxenholme mothers’ meeting, and by many sympathising relatives and friends. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Messrs. Hayes and Parkinson.
