PETHARD, William George (1866-1908)

Badsey’s death-roll for the past twelve months has indeed been heavy, and yet another name must now be added to it.  Mr W Pethard, who had been a patient sufferer for a long time, passed peacefully away on Sunday morning, July 5th.  Honest and straightforward in business, and generous in his support of every local enterprise, his death leaves a gap by no means easy to fill.  The large assembly at his funeral, and the floral tributes from far and near, testified to the respect in which he was held both in the neighbourhood and also in Birmingham.  It was a matter of very deep regret to the Vicar that he was unable to officiate at the funeral.
