Death of William Cope Cooper, Esquire, D.L., J.P

Carlow Sentinal November 14th 1874.

Funeral of William Cope Cooper, Esquire, D.L., J.P.

The funeral of this lamented gentleman whose death we recorded last week, took place last Thursday.

Before twelve o'clock, the hour named for the funeral to leave for the family burial place at Castletown, an immense concourse of people assembled to pay a last tribute of respect to the memory of a gentleman who was universally esteemed and beloved for his many estimable qualities.

In the mournful procession, which extended about a mile and a-half in length, were the equipages of a large number of the gentry of Carlow and Queen's County, while the tenantry on the estate and the residents generally of the locality were very largely represented.

The chief mourners were Rev. Robert Cooper, Colonel Cooper (brothers) William Agustus Cooper, Edward Cooper, Dr. Cooper, Charles Cooper, Henry Cooper, and Rev. J.W. Durbin, nephews of the deceased.

The above is a true and accurate transcript of the original document.
