Obituary (from The Leeds Mercury, Tuesday 2 Feb 1892)

 

DEATH OF THE REV. G. S. DANIELS, OF LEEDS.

 

One of the most recent victims of influenza in Leeds is the Rev. George Sercombe Daniels, Superintendent on the Brunswick Wesleyan Circuit, who passed away unexpectedly, in his sleep, early on Monday morning, at his residence, Brunswick Chapel House, Leeds. The rev. gentleman had been suffering from influenza and bronchitis for ten days, but the immediate cause of his death was syncope. Mr. Daniels, who was 48 years of age, had travelled in various circuits for twenty-seven years prior to the last Conference, and latterly he had been located in Howden, Tadcaster and Ripon. The friends at the latter place presented him with a handsome testimonialas a token of their esteem and appreciation, upon his leaving that circuit, at the Conference of 1889, for Leeds. He had laboured with much acceptance in the Brunswick Circuit during the last two years or more, and had won for himself a well-deserved reputation as a diligent pastor and effective preacher. The date of the interment has not yet been fixed; but it has been arranged that it shall be preceded by a funeral service in Brunswick Chapel.
