When the news became known that Mr. John Reginald Atkins, eldest son of the Rev. John Atkins, of the Grammar School, had passed away on Wednesday in last week, the greatest sympathy was expressed by the many acquaintances of the deceased in Newbury.
Mr. Reginald Atkins was an old boy at the Grammar School, and was well known and popular amongst the last generation of scholars. He had always shown a liking for animals and outdoor pursuits, and when the time came for him to enter upon a business career, he chose to be a veterinary surgeon. He was for some time a pupil of Mr. J.H. Wilson, F.R.C.V.S., who entertained a high opinion of his character, and during that time he made many friends in the district. After a course of study at the veterinary colleges of London and Edinburgh, he obtained the diploma of M.R.C.V.S., highly distinguishing himself by three first-class certificates in clinique, surgery, and materia medica.
His first appointment, which he held until his death, was with Mr. J.G. Chesterman of Whitechapel, who spoke in the highest terms of his general work, and of his ability as a skilful operator. He became very popular in the East End, and expressions of sorrow and regret have been received from all classes.

His illness developed rapidly, the first news being received in Newbury on Thursday, October 30, at eight o'clock in the evening. Mrs. Atkins at once left, arriving at the bedside of her son at midnight. A specialist had been called in, and diagnosed the case as acute pneumonia, but held out hopes. In spite of watchful nursing and the best care, he did not rally, his mother being in constant attendance during the week, and never leaving until she brought the body of her son home with her on the Thursday. Mr. Atkins and his two eldest daughters were present the last two days and at the death, which took place early on Wednesday morning. It has been indeed a terrible blow to Mr. and Mrs. Atkins, which has been intensified by the former loss of two other sons.

THE INTERMENT The interment took place on Monday afternoon, the first part of the service being at St Nicolas' Parish Church.... The mourners were the Rev. J. Atkins and Mrs. Atkins, Miss Atkins, Miss K.V. Atkins, Mr. H.L. Atkins, Miss N. Atkins, Mr. J. Atkins, Miss A. Atkins, Mr. Patterson, Miss D.W. Atkins, Miss E. Atkins, Dr. Wilson, Mr. Chesterman, Mr. Walters, Miss Walker, Mr. Watson, Mr. Carroll, Mr. Routledge. Long lists of those attending

The coffin was of polished oak with brass fittings, and bearing the inscription; John Reginald Atkins Born November 15, 1871 Died November 5, 1902
