Errol Macleod Archer (1905–1915)

On Christmas afternoon Master Errol Macleod Archer, youngest son of Mr. Ludlow Archer, a bright young lad of 10 summers, passed away at "Northbury," after a brief illness. On Sunday afternoon he was laid to rest in the Church of England Cemetery. The Rev. L. T. Tarleton conducted the services in the church and at the grave. The two brothers and his uncle (Mr. Daniel Archer) were the chief mourners. A number of beautiful wreaths were placed on the coffin. The little lad was a great favourite with everybody. Much sympathy is felt for the relatives.
