This is an interesting Order of Service. Dr. Lionel Rosen was the newly elected Lord Mayor of the City of Hull. He was a lawyer, and a Labour member of the City Council for over 25 years. He had been Sheriff of Hull in 1951-52, and was the fourth Jew to be Lord Mayor of the City.
The Rabbi, Chaim Joshua Cooper, who had previously been at Catford Synagoogue (1937-45) and Kingsbury District Synagogue in London (1951-57) and Adelaide, Australia (1958-59), had been appointed by the Lord Mayor to be his Chaplain.
