    Funeral of Mr. Roger IDDISON. On Saturday afternoon, the remains of Mr. Roger Iddison, of Portland-street, York, were interred in York Cemetery, and were followed to their last resting place by a very large number of sympathising friends. The body was encased in a shell, and then in a massive oak coffin, panelled, with a raised lid, and an engraved shield containing the words "Roger Iddison, died March 19th, 1890, aged 55 years." The cortege moved away from the residence of the deceased in time to be at St. Mary's, Castlegate, at about a quarter to three o'clock, the following occupying the mourning coaches : Mrs. lddison (widow), Mr. and Mrs. Lane (daughter and son-in-law), Miss Lane, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. lddison, Mr. A. C. Iddison, Mr. W. H. Iddison, junr., Mr. Walter H. Iddison, Mr. Robert Simpson, Mr. John Brown, Mr. John Iddison (cousin), Mr. Helmsley, Mr. George Freeman, Mr. R. Boulton, Mrs Manton, Mr. and Mrs. Rowley, Mr. and Mrs. Cowell, Mr. and Mrs. Place, Mr John Hicks, Mr. T. Simpson, and Mr. Fred Nottingham. Wreaths were sent from the widow the daughter (Mrs. Lane), Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Iddison and family, Members of the York and Malton Cricket Clubs, Mr. Hicks, Mr. F. Nottingham, Mr. T. Barnes, Mr. and Mrs Manton, Mr. and Mrs. Place, Mr. and Mrs. Webster, Mr. George Webster, Mr. and Mrs. Hopton. Mr and Mrs. Poppleton, Mr. and Mrs. Stainthorpe, Mr. and Mrs. Chapman, Mr. and Mrs. Cowell, Mrs. Flint, Mr. T. Leach, jun., and a handsome wreath was sent in a glass case by the butchers of the Shambles. There was a large attendance of friends from Malton and other places both at the church and at the grave, among those present being Mr. Alderman Fawcett, Mr. Alderman Walker, Councillors Chapman, Oxley, Croskell, and Dalton; the Rev. E. S. Carter. Messrs. Hornsea, jun. (Malton), W. Hornsea, T. Ryder, J. Templeton (Flaxton), W. Roden, W. M. Briggs, Rispin (Huntington), J. H. Graves, H. Vaughan, E. Wilkinson, J Holiday Smith, G.

W. Frenka (Helmsley), and H. Nixon Yorkshire Gentlemen's Ground. Many Malton friends were prevented from attending owing to the inconvenience of the day, and for a similar reason the Shambles butchers were limited in attendance. As the coffin was carried into the church sentences from Helmore's burial service were sung by the choir, who marched in procession in front of the coffin, and afterwards the 90th Psalm (Felton) was sung, Mr. G. H. Noyes presiding at the organ. The Rev. H. Vyvyan, vicar, read the lesson, and after the hymn, "When our heads are bowed with woe" had been sung, the procession was reformed for the Cemetery. At the latter place the remaining portion of the service was read by the Rev. E. C. Bedwell, curate of St. Mary's. Mr. Bean, of Gillygate, had charge of the funeral arrangements."

    Funeral of the late Roger Iddison. On Saturday the remains of the late Mr. Roger Iddison, of York, whose name will be familiar to the devotees of cricket in England, and especially to those in the county of "broad acres," were interred in York Cemetery. Mr. Iddison was a playing member of the Yorkshire County Cricket Club for many years, and held for some time the position of captain. His figure was also a familiar one in the principal English matches of his time, and in the pursuit of his vocation he was in the service of a number of the leading local clubs of the country. On retiring from active participation in Yorkshire county cricket about 1872, Mr. Iddison started a shop for the sale of cricket materials, &c., in Blake-street, York, and subsequently became an auctioneer, and as such was very popular with his fellow-citizens and the inhabitants of the surrounding agricultural district. His death was due to an attack of diabetes which had confined him to the house since December. The first portion of the funeral ceremony was performed at the church of St. Mary's, Castlegate, in the presence of a large and sympathising congregation. Besides the chief mourners, who included the widow and other members and relations of the deceased's family, there were among those present at the church or graveside Mr. George Freeman (Thirsk), Mr. R. Boulton (Malton), Mr. J. Hicks, the Rev. E. S. Carter, Mr. H. Nixon, Mr. H. Dewse (York), Mr. M. Tomlinson, Mr. W. M. Briggs (Grand Stand, Knavesmire, York), Mr. T. F. Armison (Sessay), Mr. Seth Tinsley (Malton), Mr. F. H. Vaughan (hon. secretary York Cricket Club), Mr. J. L. Procter (assistant hon. secretary York Cricket Club), and a number of other gentlemen interested in the national game. The funeral was also attended by several members of the York Corporation, including Ald. Thos. Walker, Ald. Fawcett, Councillor Croskill, and Councillor Dalton, and there were also present representative auctioneers and others, many of whom sent wreaths. The service, which was of an impressive character, was performed by the Rev. H. Vyvyan and the Rev. E. C. Bedwell."
