Mr. Cyril Forde Minchin, who died in Melbourne last Saturday, was a native of Wagga and was the younger son of Mr. and Mrs. Stapleton Minchin, residents of Wagga in the very early days of the town. They had three sons who were born in Gurwood-street, and they are now all deceased, Mr. Stapleton Minchin, Mr. Noel Minchin and Mr. Cyril Minchin. The latter entered the service of the Union Bank and was for some years manager of the Albury branch. He retired some years ago and went to reside in Melbourne. A son of Mr. Cyril Minchin, Mr. John Minchin, practised as a solicitor in Wagga a few years ago.
