Report on Alfred's funeral which may be of interest
Liverpool Echo 10 Aug 1925 page 7 col 2

Pathetic Scene at Wirral Funeral
Dead Huntsman's Two Little Daughters
The late Mr Alfred Jones, who was
hunstman to the Royal Rock Beagles for
seventeen years, and who died under tragic
circumstances on Wednesday, as already
reported, was buried at Bebington Cemetery
this afternoon.
Messrs. C.H, Hind (hon. secretary),
and H Todd, S. E. Smythe, and J. N.
Evans, members of the Hunt, were present.
Mr Gray Cowie, master of the
Chester Beagles, was also in attendance.

Two pathetic little figures were the
huntsman's little daughters, Betty and
Peggy, aged eight and six years, who
accompanied their mother, and who were
practically as well known to the hounds as
their father. The Rev. F.M. Cundy
conducted the service.
Mr. Jones was most popular with all
members of the hunt, his untimely death
creating intense sorrow amongst the
members of Cheshire sporting circles.

Boo
