Cohen, Edward Meyer (1857–1933)

Mr. Edward M. Cohen, who died at his residence, Lowden-street, Haberfield, on Wednesday, aged 75 years, had been 40 years in the Public Service. A native of Launceston, Tasmania, he came over to the mainland with his parents when a boy, and later entered the Justice Department. His first position was at North Sydney, then at Central, and from there he was promoted to the position of C.P.S. at Wallsend, Newcastle district. Subsequently he was stationed at Stroud, Lithgow, Murrurundi, and Armidale, from which lastnamed position he retired ten years ago, having reached the age limit. He had been a resident of Haberfield for about six years. Mrs Cohen (the widow), two sons and two daughters survive. The funeral took place on Thursday afternoon, when the remains were interred in the Presbyterian portion of the Rookwood Cemetery. The Rev. J. Galloway, of Burwood, conducted the service at the graveside.
