Prior to coming to St. Joseph's twenty-five years ago, Brother Benignus was stationed at Dreux, Normandy.

Representatives from the Brothers' schools at Ipswich, Southsea and Blackheath were present at the Requiem at the College on Tuesday. The Rev. F. Ellis, chaplain, celebrated.

The interment followed at Queen's Road Cemetery, Croydon. Brother Simon, director, and many of the community attended.
