From the Isle of Wight County Press, 27 July 1919 :

In the presence of many comrades who fought with him at Gallipoli, the funeral took place at Northwood Cemetery on Friday week of ex-Rifleman Stanley Thomas Ivory, son of Mr Ivory of Cross Street. The deceased went to Gallipoli with the IW Rifles and was invalided home suffering from shell shock, from which he never recovered. He was 26 years of age. Captain E Moore, Lieut. G H Hamond, and about 30 former N.C.O.s and men of the Rifles followed the remains to the grave, and ex-CSM H Sheath and Riflemen Arold, Ince, Peach, Davies and Lane acted as bearers. A Union Jack covered the coffin. The Rev. Father J O'Hanlon officiated, and Bugler Marshall sounded the 'Last Post'. The mourners were the father, two sisters and two brothers. A beautiful floral tribute was inscribed 'In memory of Rifleman Ivory, and with sincere sympathy, from some of his old comrades of the Isle of Wight Rifles, July 18th 1919'.
