Funeral of the Rev. George Coulton.

The mortal remains of the late Rev. George Coulton were, on Saturday, consigned to their last resting-place in the prettily situated graveyard attached to the Church at Helme. The rev. gentleman, who was vicar of St. Polycarp's Church, Liverpool, where he was highly respected by the parishioners, died on Thursday afternoon, after a brief illness. He was educated at St. Aidan's College, Birkenhead, ordained deacon in 1875, and priest in 1887 by the Bishop of Ripon. After serving as curate to the late Rev. George Hough, the venerable vicar of South Crosland, he was, from 1883 to 1893, vicar of Helme, which living he relinquished to accept that of St. Polycarp. He was a hardworking clergyman, and was much esteemed by all who knew him.
