This week’s round-up of pieces from the Batley News relating to the parishioners of St Mary’s proved unusually light, limited to one parish death in the death notices columns. Perhaps this in part was a result of an earlier than usual publication date, it being Christmas.
The spelling and punctuation matches that of the newspaper.
HARGREAVES —On the 16th inst., aged [5?] years, Eileen, daughter of Ellis Hargreaves, 8, Balk Street.
