|Gladys Horridge ("Blossom") and Henry.|
In the suicide note read at Henry's inquest, the comedian wrote: "I am going to join my girl. Please bury me with her and put her photo with me. She was good to me and without her life is not worth living. I am sorry to cause everyone trouble, but perhaps I have given a little happiness to others by the wireless. It will require only a few minutes after I turn on the gas. Hello everybody, John Henry. I am going to my girl. Goodbye everyone." Henry's funeral was paid for by the Variety Artists' Benevolent Fund and attended by some 500 people.
