Mr. Frederick Alfred Carr, of Russell street, Finsbury Park, who had been an official of the Waterside Workers' Federation for 27 years, and resigned from the secretaryship a month ago, died yesterday, aged 58.

He held various offices, including that of treasurer, but was best known as secretary. His resignation was due to ill-health.
