Remains of Reginald Hale Will Be Sent to England

Syracuse Herald

To Send Hale’s Body to England.

The remains of Reginald Hale, the sturdy young Englishman who left his Somersetshire home some nine years ago to come to Auburn and make his home, were picked up at sea this week and identified.  They will be taken from Halifax to his home in Rodney Stoke, near Cheddar, Somersetshire, England, for burial.  The members of General Gordon lodge, Sons of St. George, of which the deceased was a member, took immediate steps to have the body of their friend and comrade brought to his Auburn home, but the mother of the deceased requested the shipment of the remains to the family home in England, and such action was taken.  Sidney S. Wills of this city, local agent of the White Star line, went to New York this week to give instructions regarding the transfer of Hale’s body, and a beautiful wreath from the Sons of St. George will be placed on the coffin.  Resolutions of sympathy and condolence have also been forwarded to the bereaved family in England.

William Acheson, a member of the firm, the Auburn Thread and Twine company, has returned home from Ireland, where he went some time ago to purchase machinery and supplies for the new mill of the company in South Division street.  He intended returning home on the Titanic and had his passage booked.  Delay in railway connections prevented his reaching the boat before it sailed.
