KEEN, Richard Walter (1890-1913)

A Sad Coincidence

July and August have been sad months for many in Badsey.  On July 12th we laid to rest Mr Richard Walter Keen who was suddenly cut off at the very outset of his career, the circumstances of whose death were the more pathetic leaving, as he did, a young wife and a little baby only four months old.  Exactly a month later, on August 12th, Badsey Churchyard was the scene of another sorrowful ceremony – the funeral of Mrs Arthur Jones, whose death was equally unexpected and hardly less tragic.
