Thomas Grayland (?–1921)

Mr Thomas Grayland, an old and very highly-respected resident of Cobden, died rather suddenly early on Sunday morning. On Friday Mr Grayland appeared quite in his normal health, but on Saturday morning became ill. He apparently recovered, but at about 9.30 p.m. he again became ill and Dr. Browne, who was sent for, said that deceased was suffering from heart trouble. Though having shown signs of recovery during the night, Mr Grayland passed peacefully away at about 1 o'clock on Sunday morning. The funeral left the late gentleman's residence in Parrot street at 3 p.m. on Monday and his remains were laid to rest in the Cobden Cemetery. The funeral was one of the largest seen in the district.
