    • "The funeral took place on Thursday of Mr Harry record who died suddenly it at the age of 71 on Tuesday at his home Rosemary Cottage after a short illness. He was a well-known figure as a carrier having travelled for 30 years to Yeovil on Fridays and for 40 years to Dorchester on Wednesdays and Saturdays and it was his proud statement that no matter what the weather he had never failed to reach Dorchester with his goods entrusted to him he was the most of the most affable kindly nature very straightforward in his dealings, and an excellent example of the trusted carrier who was a friend and confidential agent of all living along the route he so regularly took. His sudden death came as a the great blow to his immediate relatives who receive the sincere sympathy of the whole countryside. Although his son and daughter continued the carriers business in view of his increasing age he still took the greatest interest in their daily journeys and in the management of their land."
