Notes on Officiants

Several of my family’s Brockley burials were conducted by George Sole, a former London City missionary and cemetery chaplain. He was born at 54 Chenier Mews, St Giles in the Fields, Holborn, the son of a cooper. At the time of his death lived at 39 Brockley Road, Deptford. He was himself buried at Brockley Cemetery, in unconsecrated ground, on 16th October 1913 at the age of 73.
