BRADLEY - March 7th, in hospital at Pendleton, Manchester, Ralph, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. C. Bradley, The Bungalow, Bolton Abbey, in his 23rd year.

14 March 1919

BOLTON ABBEY

Death of Mr. Ralph Bradley. - The death occurred in hospital at Pendleton, Manchester, on Friday, from pneumonia following influenza, of Mr. Ralph Bradley, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. C. Bradley, of the Bungalow, Bolton Abbey. Deceased, who was in his 23rd year, had for three years been a wireless operator in the Merchant Service. His duties had taken him to many parts of the globe, and, like others who during the war have been going to sea, he had had one or two exiting experiences from enemy submarines' activity, including the torpedoing of a ship on which he was serving. A few days before he went into hospital (he was ill close upon a fortnight) he had returned from Galverston [sic], U.S.A., the ship being berthed at Salford Docks. Deceased had a bright, cheery disposition, and many friends will hear with regret of his death. The interment took place on Wednesday at Bolton Abbey Church, the service being conducted by the Rev. C.F. Tomlinson, Rector.
