The funeral of the late Frank D. Millet, the well known artist and one of the victims of the Titanic disaster, was held yesterday afternoon at the Mt. Auburn cemetery chapel. The Rev. Charles M. Park of the First Unitarian church, Boston, officiated, and selections were sung by the Pilgrim quartet. At the chapel organ was Warren A. Locke, Harvard, ’09?, one of the deceased’s classmates.

Lovering Hill?, Harvard ’10 and Thomas P. Beal?, Joseph F. Bigelow and Warren B. Hall of Harvard ’09 acted as pallbearers. The casket was decorated with a large American flag, a tribute of the Benjamin Stone Post 08, G. A. R. Of Dorchester. A huge wreath, tribute of President Taft, rested on the lid.

After the services the body was cremated and the ashes will be buried today with services at Bridgewater, the late home of Mr. Millet.
