Mrs Grovenor had been in hospital about a month. The deceased lady was born at Wollongong and came to Gunning about 70 years ago.

Children of the first family were, the late Mr. James Grovenor formerly manager of the Australian Bank of Commence, in Goulburn; the late Charles Grovenor, storekeeper at Gunning, and the late Archibald Grovenor, of Sydney. Mr. William Grovenor, a fourth son, is still alive and resides in Victoria. The late Miss Emma Grovenor, a daughter, was a sister in the Convent of Mercy Grafton. There is one sister, Mrs. McEnroe, of Gundaroo.

The late Mrs. Grovenor enjoyed good health up till recently. She had one of those dispositions which make many friends and "Stangrove" was always a home of hospitality. The remains will be taken to Gunning this afternoon and a requiem mass held in the Gunning Catholic Church at 8 a.m. to-morrow. The funeral will leave the church for the Catholic cemetery at 2 p.m.
