Seagrott, George (1842–1927)

The many friends of the family learned with regret of the death of Mr George Seagrott, which occurred suddenly yesterday. In apparent good health, Mr Seagrott left Inverell at the beginning of the week for Blue Nobby station, Coolatai, where he had work in one of the sheds. Early yesterday morning while at work he took a sudden turn and collapsed in the shed. The ambulance was summoned and was about an hour on the road on the return journey to Inverell when Mr Seagrott passed away. Dr Liggins was also called but death supervened before he met the ambulance.

The late Mr. Seagrott, who was 44 years of age was the son of the late Mr. George Allen Seagrott, whose death occurred just twelve months ago. He was born in Inverell but spent a number of years in business in Western Australia. A few years ago he returned to Inverell and acquired the bakery establishment in Byron Street now conducted by Mr. Sharpe.

Deceased was a married man and is survived by his wife. There were no children of the marriage. His aged mother is still living and his surviving brothers are Messrs. Reginald and William (Inverell). Sisters of the deceased are Mesdames J. Gordon (W.A.), J. Sheldon (Manilla), A. A. Thomas (Inverell), W. Margerson (W.A.), and E. A. Thomas (Inverell).

The late Mr. Seagrott was a member of Lodge, Inverell, and was accorded a Masonic funeral this afternoon, when the remains were laid to rest in the Church of England portion of the cemetery.

An inquest will be held by the Coroner at a date to be fixed.
