JC - In Memorium

A gloom has been cast over the members of Bradford Jewish Institute by the death of Charles Blievers (youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Blievers, of Sedgwick Street) from wounds received in action. The sad news was sent to the parents by the Rev M. Adler, Senior Chaplain,, who informed them that he had buried the body in the Jewish portion of a cemetery in France. It is only two weeks ago since the deceased wrote to the Institute thanking the Bradford community for their kindness in sending him a parcel for Passover and relating some of his experiences at the front. The greatest sympathy is felt for the bereaved parents and family, who have lost a kind and loving son and brother.
