Ernest Holland (1864–1950)

It is with deep regret that we record a double bereavement within a week sustained by the Holland family, of Windsor, in the death on August 9 of Mr. Alfred Stanley Holland, at the age of 55 years, followed by the passing on August 14 of his uncle, Mr. Ernest Holland, at the advanced age of 85 years, after a prolonged illness in each case. The late Mr. Alfred Holland, who was unmarried, was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Prosper Holland, and is survived by a brother, Bert, and two sisters, Ruby and Mattie, who nursed him devotedly during his long illness. The late Mr. Ernest Holland was predeceased by his wife. Both the deceased were esteemed citizens, widely respected by a large circle of district friends, whose sympathy is extended to the relatives, in this latest of more than their share of trouble in recent years. The interment was conducted in the Church of England cemetery, at Windsor on the following day in each instance.
