Sunday's Obituary - Charlie Read

Thanks go out to Find a Grave member Laura J. Stewart, who posted an obituary for my second-great-grandfather Charlie Read, on his Findagrave entry. Back in May 2013, I posted a transcription from the 14 December 1916 edition of the Glasgow Republican. Laura found a longer obituary in the 8 December 1916 edition of the Glasgow Times.

There is an inaccuracy in the obituary, Charlie's father Guilford Dudley Read died nine months earlier, not "a few years earlier".

It is striking to see that he was the same age I am now, leaving behind a wife and ten young children. I was unaware that Charlie and Mary Alice had lost two children.
