From The Believer's Magazine 51 (1941), p. 72:
J.H. BURRIDGE, of Birmingham, in his 86th year. Whilst on a visit to Merseyside on May 6th, was knocked down by a bus and instantly killed. An honoured servant of God, he remained active in service and in possession of his physical faculties to a remarkable degree for over seventy years of his christian experiences. Converted at 16, and wholly devoted to the Lord's service at 20, our departed brother was greatly used in early years in fruitful Gospel labours. Fearless in his witness, he will be remembered for his stand at the time of the “Needed Truth” departure, and as an author, his writings on common heresies and prophetic truth are greatly valued. Although in his 86th year, his sight and hearing were little impaired, and he was amazingly vigorous in mind and body. Those who were privileged to hear him during his last series of meetings at the end of April testify to the fresh and forceful character of the Word ministered. Now the labourer rests.
