    ELY STANDARD: Death of Mr H. H. Kempton. Well-known trader and sportsman. His many friends heard with deep regret of the death at his home early on Tuesday morning of Mr Herbert Henry Kempton, the well-known greengrocer and fruiterer, of 1 Market Street Ely. He was 74 and although he had been ailing for some time, he was in his shop as usual on Saturday and was up on Monday, although he went to bed in the afternoon. He died at 3 am on Tuesday.
    A widow and two sons, Mr Francis Henry Kempton, who was in the business with his father, and Mr Herbert William Kempton of Harrow, are left and to them deep sympathy is extended. With the passing of Mr Kempton, Ely loses a member of one of its oldest and best known families; one that has been associated with the City for generations. The Market Street business has been in the family for 100 years and Mr Kempton took it over on the death of his father, the late Mr William Kempton, about 40 years ago.
