Lancelot Lombe Brooke (1884–1949)

News was received today of the death on Monday of Mr. L. L. [Launcelot Lombe] Brooke, aged 64, former Singleton Bank of New South Wales manager who, during a seven years' residence in Singleton, made many friends.

Deceased left here in November 1936, transferring to Forbes, Western N.S.W., and later to Wangaratta, Victoria.

While living in Singleton Mr. Brooke took an active part in many public activities. He was a fine townsman, and a loyal worker for the Catholic Church.

Due for retirement in September, he arranged, owing to illness, to retire this month, after a long banking service.

Surviving Mr. Brooke, are wife, four sons, Jack, Paul, Lance, and Miles and three daughters, Mrs. Tony Enright (Maitland), and Mary and Helen. Helen was visiting Mrs. Enright at Maitland, when her father's untimely death occurred.
