From the United Parish Magazine, St Peter's Church, Martley December 1918:

Even Sunday's joy was overshadowed by the news of Tom Willis's death and the greatest sympathy is felt for Mrs Willis. Tom was such a steady good fellow, and excellent husband and faithful servant at the Noak for 17 years. We have no more tragic loss than his to mourn.
