These are the Minutes of an Emergent Meeting on 8 May 1943 to conduct W.B. Young’s funeral:
“….The Lodge was opened…..in the M.M. Degree at 1:15 p.m. The W.M. informed the Brethren that the meeting was called for the purpose of conducting the funeral of our late Brother, Wor. Bro. Thomas Frederick Young, who passed away in Victoria on May 5th.
After the service in the Lodge room, the Brethren proceeded to St. Mary’s Church cemetery at Somenos where the Last Rites of our Order were conducted by Wor. Bro. C.W. O’Neill in a very impressive manner.
On returning to the Lodge room the W.M. closed the Lodge in short form at 2:25 p.m. Peace and harmony prevailing.
