The funeral of Edwin Berry


November 21, 1925
There was a large and representative gathering at the funeral at Anfield Cemetery, to-day, of Mr. Edwin Berry, the well-known Liverpool solicitor, who in his younger days played for the Liverpool and Everton football clubs.

There were present representatives of the Licensing Committee of the City Justices, the legal profession, Conservative organisations, Masonic lodges, Liverpool Football Club, Licensed Victuallers’ Association, and a number of brewing companies.

There were many beautiful floral tributes, including a wreath of orchids from the Earl and Countess of Birkenhead, with the inscription: “In deep sympathy, and in memory of a very old friend.” It will be recalled that as election agent for the Walton Parliamentary Division, Mr. Berry took a leading part in introducing Lord Birkenhead (then Mr. F.E. Smith) to political life as the candidate, and later the member, for that constituency.
