    Joseph Merrill's funeral notice, <i>Colonist</i>, 31 Mar 1895, p. 5.
    Joseph Merrill's funeral notice, Colonist, 31 Mar 1895, p. 5.
    While it is not known if this is the same Joseph Merrill who worked for J. Savannah up until at least 1895, this funeral notice indicates the spiritual connection between two members of the Victoria photographic community, O.C. Hastings and one of the Maynard family men who acted as a pall bearer.

  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: He worked for J. Savannah and probably lived in or over the studio.

      A Joseph Merrill, age 63, died in Victoria on 28 Mar 1895 (BVIPA death registration record no. 1895-09-009664), however, it has not been determined if this is the same individual. A Colonist article (31 Mar 1895, p. 5) about his funeral indicates he was a Spiritualist church member and that at least two members of the photographic community attended his burial at Ross Bay Cemetery: O.C. Hastings and one of the Maynard men who acted as a pall bearer.
