Emanuel Flew Dalgleish (1864–1928)

The death took place on the 17th instant of Emanuel Flew Dalgleish, postmaster at Richmond, at the age of 63 years. Deceased, who had been in charge of the Richmond Post Office for some years past, had been failing in health, and his death was not unexpected. Possessing a reserved disposition, he seldom took part in public functions, nevertheless he was charitable to a fault, and always helped a deserving cause. Born in Sydney, the late Mr. Dalgleish was a son of the late Daniel Cameron Dalgleish, an engineer. He was married at Marrickville at the age of 25 years to Jessie Andrews, who survives him, along with two sons and two daughters, viz., Janette (Mrs. Thompson), Robert, Cameron, and Grace. Two children predeceased their father. The funeral took place on Friday, the remains being laid to rest in the Presbyterian cemetery, Richmond. Rev. W. R. Milne conducted the last sad rites.
