In 1932, the Reverend Mr Marshall of St Paul's Church, Woking, was taken ill. He was moved to hospital and a temporary replacement brought in to take up his ecclesiastical duties. A couple of days later a parishioner was in the church when she saw Marshall standing beside the altar rail in the church. She thought that he must have recovered rather quicker than expected and was back in the parish, but since he appeared to be deep in thought she did not bother him. It was not until a couple of days later that she heard that Marshall had died, and that he had breathed his last at about the time that she had seen him in the church.
