Canon Walmsley Carter

East Anglia mourns the loss of an apostolic and greatly-loved priest, Canon Thomas Walmsley Carter, of Sheringham, who died on the 19th inst. in his seventysecond year. For a long period he had been in declining health: in recent years the state of his eyesight was an anxiety; but with indomitable courage the late Canon kept at his tasks as long as his strength permitted, Among those tasks Was one which he accepted a few years since, in the work of promoting organised devotion to Our Lady of Walsinghatn.

After education at Oscott College, he was ordained in 1902 and became the first resident priest at Cromer.

At Sheringham he built the church of St. Joseph, a building completed and consecrated in 1910, and in that town, after relinquishing charge at Cromer, he settled, as rector, for the remainder of his life. in 1928 he was made a member of the Northampton Cathedral Chapter.

The Requiem Mass, followed by the interment, was celebrated at Sheringharn yesterday, Thursday,
