Byard, Alfred John (1884–1916)

from Register (Adelaide)

A painfully sudden death occurred on Monday morning at the Adelaide Steamship Company's office, Port Adelaide. Mr. Alfred John Byard, a clerk employed by the company, at 9.5 a.m. fell to the floor and expired. About 10 minutes previously Mr. A. J. Bampton, a fellow clerk, spoke to deceased, and asked him how he was getting on. Deceased replied that he had been absent a week from business owing to illness, and said his heart was not 'too good,' and had been troubling him all the previous week. Dr. Muirhead, who was summoned immediately Mr. Byard was seen to fall, examined him and pronounced life extinct. The body was removed to the Morgue. The Coroner, who was notified, considered an inquest unnecessary. Deceased was a married man, aged 33 years, and resided at South Terrace, Semaphore.
