I have not been approached for any Jewish ceremony. We are burying the child in the way arranged because we believe that we are committing her into the arms of Jesus Christ, the Christian Saviour, who, at the same time was a Jew himself and the King of the Jews, the Rev, H. F. Waller-Bridge, the Rector of Worth, said to the “Daily Express” yesterday, explaining why the three victims of the bungalow tragedy, Mr. and Mrs. Levin and their eight-year-old daughter June, were buried in his churchyard.
