Woolf Flegeltaub (1841–1907)

from Hebrew Standard of Australasia

After an illness of some weeks' duration, Mr Wolf Flegeltaub of this city, passed away at his residence, Stuart-street, on Sunday last. Mr Flegeltaub had been a victim for some time to an internal complaint, and though his demise was not unexpected, it was nevertheless very much regretted, for by his death Ballarat loses a worthy citizen. The deceased gentleman was a native of Poland, and was 66 years of age at the time of his death. Mr Flegeltaub made Ballarat his home in 1868 and by his integrity of character soon won for himself the esteem of those with whom he had dealings. The deceased gentlemen was an ex-president of the Congregation, and filled important offices in other organisations of the city. The funeral was on Monday and was very largely attended by both Jewish and non-Jewish friends. Rev B. Lenzer conducted the service which was a very impressive one.
