Edols, Charles Hedley (1859–1918)

By the death of Mr. Charles Hedley Edols, of Burrawang, Forbes, N.S.W., which occurred in Sydney on the 8th September after a short illness, there has been removed a very prominent figure in the pastoral world. Courteous, considerate, and sympathetic, Mr. Edols was a favourite of all who had the privilege of knowing him intimately, and everyone who came in contact with him appreciated his sterling character. A man of strong determination, he handled everything he was connected with successfully, and in difficult positions he never faltered. Coming from a well-known pastoral family owning a number of stations, he was identified with pastoral pursuits from his youth, and his knowledge of sheep was unlimited. His splendid Merino stud at Burrawang was known throughout the whole of Australia, and its reputation was the result of his keen judgment and wonderful management. His wife predeceased him by ten years. He is survived by two sons and one daughter. One of his sons, Lieutenant Thomas Edols, is in the Flying Corps in France.
