Hort Brown, Alfred Henry (?–1929)

The death occurred at St Martin's Hospital last night, as a result of heart failure following a severe attack of influenza, of Mr. Alfred Henry Hort-Brown, of Winslow Gardens, Darling Point, Sydney.

The late Mr. Hort-Brown, who was on a visit to Brisbane, was a son of the late Dr. Henry Hort-Brown, who practised in Maryborough many years ago, and a nephew of the late Mr. Alfred H. Brown, one time owner of the Gin Gin and Barolin stations, in the Bundaberg district.

Mr. Brown entered the service of the Commercial Banking Company of Sydney at Dalby 50 years ago, and since then he had managed the branch of that Bank at Warren, and afterwards at Picton, in N.S.W., until his retirement about five years ago.

The body is being conveyed by to-day's mail train to Sydney for burial at the Waverley Cemetery on Saturday.
