April 1925: The death of Samuel Lucas, who had taught at the Lancashire Hill branch of Stockport Sunday Schools for 54 years: ‘Another valued colleague has been “called home”. Samuel Lucas was one of our honoured veterans, his jubilee as a teacher and visitor having been celebrated in September 1919. For about 54 years our Lancashire Hill Branch was the scene of his Sunday School activities. How his services there have been appreciated is indicated in a note under the heading of that school in another part of this magazine. Mr Lucas was member of the General Committee of the Institution, second on the list of active visitors, and in 1918 he qualified as a trustee. He also rendered useful service to the town as a member of the Corporation, discharging his duties with a conscientiousness fully justifying the general regard in which he was held as a worthy citizen.’;

Heaviley School: ‘The announcement of the death of Mr Samuel Lucas was received with great regret by all at Heaviley. The deceased gentleman has lived usefully, and with purpose. He has served his fellows for the love of them. To our friends at L.H.S.S., to those at home, and to our own colleague, Ernest Lucas, we extend sincere sympathy.’

Brinkway School: ‘Our sympathies are extended to our sister institution at Lancashire Hill in the loss of their esteemed Visitor, Mr S. Lucas’

Lancashire Hill School: Councillor Samuel Lucas

With deep sorrow we record the passing away of our Senior Visitor. For fifty-four years as Teacher and Visitor, Mr Lucas laboured unceasingly in this part of the Master’s vineyard with the same spirit and holy desire as the men who, over a century ago, were inspired to build and equip our school. His influence with the younger scholars was quite magnetic – he was greatly beloved by them – and many now grown to full estate acknowledge with gratitude the beneficial effect upon their lives of his wonderful personality. To all who were associated with him in the work of the school he has left a fragrant memory, and has faithful devotion may well be an inspiration to us to do everything we can to maintain the traditions of a noble past in the work of bringing the kingdom of heaven to the hearts of the scholars. Our sympathy goes out to the members of the family in their bereavement, with the earnest prayer that God may be with them in their great sorrow. At the interment, which took place at Christ Church, Heaton Norris, a marked tribute was paid to the memory of Mr Lucas as a citizen and member of the local governing authority. The Mayor attended, wearing official insignia, with many other members of the Corporation, and representatives of various public bodies. The proceedings at our school on Sunday afternoon, 29th March, will take the form of an In Memoriam service, in which the chief officials of the Institution will take part.’
