St. Katharine's Church, Uitenhage

With acknowledgements to "The History of St. Katharine's Church, Uitenhage" by W. P. Sellick.


"Mr. F. O. INGGS, manager of C. P. Lane's drapery shop in Caledon Street, a little man with dark side-whiskers who sang with a high unmusical voice."

Obituary dated 22nd September 1929 (probably Uitenhage Chronicle)



One of Uitenhage's oldest and most respected residents, Mr. Frederick Oliver Inggs, passed away on Sunday. The deceased gentleman had been in indifferent health for some months past and the end came very peacefully.

The late Mr. Inggs was a very fine type of man and was liked and respected by the entire community. Of a kind, generous and gentle disposition, straightforward and upright in all his dealings he was known to practically everyone in Uitenhage and was held in affectionate esteem by all.

Born in Berkshire 78 years ago, Mr. Inggs came to this country when a mere boy and settled in Uitenhage, where he eventually went into business. He was the owner of the business known as "The Cash Establishment" on the site of the shop which is now Bates and Co., the jewellers, after which he was for some time manager of Messrs. Way and Co.'s shoe business. He was also manager of a firm called Baker and Co., and for Barnes and Co., drapers. Mr. Inggs had been associated with St. Katherine's Church, Uitenhage, for very many years where he was choirmaster and organist and also held the position of churchwarden for a long time. In his younger days, Mr. Inggs was himself the possessor of a very fine voice and he will be greatly missed at the church which he loved so well .

He leaves four sons and three daughters. Of the four sons, Mr. Walter Inggs is the present Market Master at Uitenhage while another son, Mr. James Inggs is associated with the Uitenhage Board of Executors. The other two sons are in the Transvaal. The three daughters are Mrs. G.T. Smith, Mrs. Foxcroft and Miss K. Inggs. His nephew, Mr. Herbert Inggs is a partner in the well-known firm of Gubb and Inggs, who have the Woolwasheries. Mr. Inggs's wife predeceased him some six months ago and the loss of his wife was a very great blow to him.

A fully choral funeral service was held yesterday afternoon, in St. Katherine's Church, which was very largely attended, many of Mr. Inggs's old friends being present. Mr. James Gibb read the lessons and Mr. W.W. Legg presided at the organ, the anthem "O Rest In the Lord", accompanying the funeral procession into the Church, while "The Dead March" (Saul) was played as the recessional.

The service at the graveside was conducted by the Ven. Archdeacon F.W. Flack, M.A., who, in the course of a brief address, made feeling references to the deceased gentleman's sterling qualities and expressed condolences with his relatives.
