14 Sat. Very cold, white frost., thick fog but thinning a little by the afternoon. Uncle Henry was laid to rest in Morden Cemetery. Rev. Dr. Panton(?) Milum read the services first at the church & then at the graveside. I went by cycle to the cemetery in the fog, visibility being lkess than 10 yards in places. Ethel bore up well but was deeply affected. And so comes to an end another life - one who I have always known and who has never lived very far away.
15 Sun. Cold, dismal, misty. Had to repair end fence of garden as someone had pulled it down. Stayed in and an advantage to do so.
16 Mon. Cold, windy but a little brighter. Walked to Morden to buy fish also cement at Smaldon's. Mrs. Akroyd called in evening and brought us a new accumulator as a present. We were surprised at so generous a gift we were in need of one and this is one more proof of her unselfish nature; she really is a gem.
