Farnborough (Hants) has lost, through his death on December 16. one of its oldest, bestknown and most respected parishionets in Mr. George Edward Davis. The history of the parish and the life-story of Mr. Davis are as one. He had devoted himself untiringly tn the church and worked with untiring ardour.
Requiem Mass was Sung on Monday in the Salesian Church, Farnborough, to which the body had been carried by Knights of St. Columba and others, on the plevious evening, by his-eldest son, the Rev. L. G. V. Davis, S.C., M.A., of Cowley, Oxford.
The Rev. D. J. Sutherland, S.C., LL.D. (rector), in a panegyric. recalled how during the last war Mr. Davis had worked strenuously,with Mrs. Davis and other helpers to build up the Salesian College. Most of the buildings and the properly which the Catholic community in Farnborough possessed to-day were obtained by the money raked through charitable efforts and entertainments by Mr. Devis and his collaborators.
