    BEDFORDSHIRE TIMES & INDEPENDENT: UPPER CALDECOTE. We regret to record the sad death of a young Grenadier Guardsman, Percy Vintner, the second son of Mr and Mrs Ernest Vintner, of this village, which took place on Friday, the 16th, from meningitis. His age was 21, and he was a young man of very fine physique. He joined the Grenadiers six months ago. He was stationed at Caterham. Some time ago he contracted fever, and spent some weeks in the hospital, and was apparently going on well, as on February 9th he came home on holiday. On the next day he was taken ill, and passed away on the following Friday. The funeral took place at the Church on Monday, in the presence of many sympathisers, the Rev F S Scaright officiating. The hymn "Jesu lover of my soul" was sung, and Miss Dalton, at the organ, played appropriate music as the cortege passed to the grave. Messts E Godfrey, L Butcher, D and H Wagstaff, F Watts, and G Osborn, friends of deceased, acted as bearers. The mourners were Mr and Mrs E Vintner, Miss May, Beatrice, Elsie, and Leslie Vintner, Mrs Vintner (Old Warden), Miss Norman (Sandy), Mr and Mrs Scott, and Mr Woodward (Northill), Mrs Field (Stotfold), and Mr Vintner (Old Warden). Floral tributes were sent by Miss Alice Norman (Sandy), the Rev F S Scaright and family, and by the members of the Caldecote Men?s Club.
