Rushden Echo, 27th April 1917, transcribed by Kay Collins
Mr. Alfred Blackwell

The Death took place yesterday morning at 3 o’clock of a well-known resident of Higham Ferrers in the person of Mr. Alfred Blackwell, aged 77, of Town Yard. Mr Blackwell was seized with a stroke a week last Sunday and was only conscious at intervals up to the time of his end, which was very peaceful. Deceased, who was a native of Higham Ferrers and was a beadsman six or seven years ago, leaves a widow, aged 75, four daughters and three sons, 28 grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. The funeral will take place tomorrow afternoon and the service will be conducted at the cemetery. One son is in Australia, and one is in the Tyneside Scottish Regt., serving in France.
