The death occurred in a private hospital at Hobart yesterday morning of Mr. Graeme Bisdee (62). Mr. Bisdee, who was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Bisdee, of Sandhill, Jericho, and later of Hutton Court, Somersetshire, England, was born at Sandhill. He was educated at St. Peter's School, Adelaide, and the Hutchins School, Hobart. When his parents went to Somersetshire he took over the management of the Sandhill property from his father.
