Thomas Joseph Dalton (1871–1925)

The death occurred yesterday at Lewisham Hospital of Mr. Thomas Joseph Dalton, chairman of directors of Dalton Brothers, of Sydney, Limited, at the age of 54 years. Mr. Dalton, who died following on an attack of pneumonia, was a son of the late Mr. Thomas Dalton, M.L.C. He was for many years honorary Vice-Consul for Spain, and relinquished that office some time ago owing to ill-health. The late Mr. Dalton was educated at St. Ignatius’s College, Riverview, and at Stonyhurst College, England. He was a Knight of the Order of St. Gregory, and was for many years honorary treasurer of Lewisham Hospital, of which institution he was a great benefactor. Mr. Dalton was greatly interested in sport, particularly in cricket. His sister, Lady Sheldon, is at present in England.

A requiem mass will be celebrated in the Convent Chapel, Lewisham, at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning, and the Funeral will take place at Gore Hill Cemetery. The interment will be made in the family vault.
