Cobcroft, Mary (1833–1896)

We have to record the death of Mrs [Mary] Cobcroft, wife of Mr David Cobcroft, of Forest Lodge (and late of Richmond), after a very long and severe illness, at the age of 62 years. Deceased was sister to Mr W. Benson, of Richmond, besides having many of her relatives and friends in the district. The funeral took place on Tuesday at Richmond, reaching there by the 11.5 train, proceeding thence to the Presbyterian Church, followed by a great train of friends. The Revs Dr Cameron and Howell Price conducted the funeral service. The coffin was carried by friends of the deceased, and the wreaths that decorated the coffin were innumerable. The interment took place at the Church of England Cemetery, both the reverend gentlemen before named officiating. Mr R. W. Dunstan carried out the funeral arrangements.
