DEATH OF MR. GEORGE ALFRED MYERS.

Practically the oldest Freemason in this part of the country the death took place on Friday at 24 Park Street, Bare, of Mr. George Alfred Myers, at the age of 81 years.

Formerly a photographer at Blackburn he resided in Morecambe 30 years ago, but left to go to Southport. He later returned to Morecambe.

His work in Freemasonry circles has been both extensive and important. He was the oldest Past Master of the Dorie Lodge, Disbury and was also connected with the Blackburn Southport and Morecambe Lodges. He also held the important and honoured position of Past Provincial Grand Deacon of the West Lancashire Province.

The funeral took place at Blackburn on Tuesday and many Freemasons from West Lancashire attended. At Morecambe, members of the Morecambe and Heysham and Lancaster Lodges accompanied the cortege along Broadway, where they dispersed. Full Masonic honours were observed at the interment.

Messrs. Willis Bros. had charge of the funeral.
