Williams, Muriel Maud (1880–1936)

Lady Lawford Many friends in England and Australia will regret to hear of the death of Lady (Muriel Maud) Lawford, which occurred at her home in Domain road, South Yarra, on Sunday. Lady Lawford, who was the younger daughter of the late Sir Hartley Williams, a member of the Supreme Court of Victoria, recently returned from England, where she spent the latter part of her life, occasionally visiting Melbourne. Lady Lawford had one son, Mr. James Oswald Watt, of Bilgola, Mt. Eliza. Her brother, Mr. George H. Williams, and her sister, Mrs. Pomeroy Greene, are the only other relatives in Victoria.

Cremation took place at the Springvale Cemetery yesterday, only relatives being present.
