Sarah Ann Grayland (1858–1933)

The death occured at Camperdown on Sunday morning of Mrs Sarah Ann Grayland, wife of Mr. George Grayland, of Barkly street. Deceased, who was 75 years of age, was a native of Lancashire England, and came to Australia at a very early age and resided in different parts of the colony prior to coming to Camperdown. She had been a resident of this district for many years and was well-known and highly respected throughout it. Deep sympathy will be felt for her husband and the family of two sons and four daughters who survive. Two sons passed away during the Great War. The funeral took place to the Camperdown Cemetery yesterday afternoon and there was a large following of district people. The service at the graveside was conducted by Rev. J. Gray Robertson, and the coffin-bearers were relatives and old friends of the Grayland family. Messrs. Collie and Brennan had charge of the funeral arangements.
