Austin de Lauret (1858–1936)

from Goulburn Evening Penny Post

Many Goulburn and district residents joined in a last tribute to the memory of the late Austin de Guerry de Lauret, whose funeral took place yesterday afternoon. The large number present to pay their respects exemplified the affectionate regard in which Mr. de Lauret was held by all sections of the community.

There was a Requiem Mass in SS. Peter and Paul's Cathedral yesterday morning, the celebrant being the Bishop of Goulburn, Most Rev. Dr. Barry.

The funeral left the Cathedral at 3.30 yesterday afternoon for the old Catholic Cemetery at North Goulburn. Bishop Barry officiated at the graveside, being assisted by Rev. Fr. Deegan, Adm., and Rev. Pr. Cahill, of Binalong. Members of the Holy Name Society were present in large numbers and St. Patrick's College, of which Mr. de Lauret was an original Old Boy, was represented by the Christian Brothers and members of the Old Boys' Union.
