The service was in charge of Jehovah's Witnesses, of which deceased was a member and was conducted by Mr. Plett of London. A service in Hamilton Friday afternoon was also largely attended by fellow employees of the C. N. R. (Canadian National Railway). A profusion of flowers testified to the esteem in which the late Mr. Collens was held.
