  • Notes 
    • Bury Free Press 22 August 1931, p7. (Abridged version)

      The funeral took place at the Borough Cemetery on Saturday afternoon, of Mr William Francis Nunn who passed away at his home, 19 Churchgate St, the previous Tuesday at the age of 80 years.

      He was extremely well-known and respected in the district. Born at Great Saxham*, he had lived in this neighbourhood the whole of his life, having worked for many years at the Westgate Brewery as a drayman.

      Afterwards he became a gardener and was employed by Mr Ollington before he turned his attention to the jobbing side and worked in many gardens in the district up till six or seven years ago, when ill health brought about his retirement.

      All his life he had been a forester. It is now four years ago since Mr Nunn celebrated his golden wedding, and he is survived by his widow., his two daughters and son, to whom the sympathy of many friends is extended.

      The funeral service was conducted by the Rev H.N.Keane, curate at St Mary's.

      The family mourners comprised the widow, Mr and Mrs W.Nunn, of London (son and daughter in law), Mr and Mrs F.Taylor, Mr and Mrs G.Smythe, of Ely, (daughters and son-in-law), Miss Doris Babbage, of Ely, Miss Renee Taylor, Mr and Mrs. H.Taylor (grandchildren), Mrs R.Dutton (sister-in-law), and Mrs Pamment (friend).

      Note: Also mentioned his brother, Joe.
      *Records suggest that he was born at Felsham and that his mother's maiden name was Lister. His family is subsequently found at Great Saxham, so this may be why the newspaper report has him born there.. No other William Francis Nunn found in the record that matches him, so the Felsham birth best fits.
