Charles Eyre (1860–1906)

It is with regret that we announce the death of Mr Charles Eyre, which took place at North Sydney on Saturday last, after a prolonged illness. The deceased during the last decade took a deep interest in Socialism, defending it openly through the general press, besides being a contributor to Socialist papers and magazines. Our personal acquaintance, though comparatively slight, impressed us with the fact that for a man in his economic walk of life he possessed a wide knowledge and a deep sympathy with the working class. The funeral, which took place on Monday morning last from his late residence Milson-street, North Sydney, for Gore Hill cemetery, was well attended, members of the I.S.C. and A.S.L. paying a last respect to the memory of one who had done much for the cause. At the graveside fitting tributes were paid to the deceased's life-work by Messrs. Dierks, Morrish, Knox, and Moroney. A couple of suitable renditions by a male voice choir added to the impressive nature of the ceremony.
