Robert Pollock (1856–1929)

The death occurred at his son's residence, Windsor, on Thursday morning, 20th instant, of Mr. Robert Pollock, at the age of 73 years. He was stricken down with a serious illness about five weeks prior to his death.

Born at Cooma, deceased was a son of the late Robert and Euphemia Pollock. He was married at Cooma to Miss Maria Payne, who survives, together with a family of four sons, viz., Albert (Inverell), Harold (Windsor), Leslie (Camden), and Stanley (Windsor).

The late Mr Pollock was a saddler by trade, and was in business at Casino, Inverell and Belmore prior to coming to Windsor about six years ago. He took over the business formerly carried on by Mr. R. E. Swords, in Windsor, and retired owing to ill health a few weeks prior to his death.

The funeral took place on Thursday afternoon, the remains being laid to rest in St. Matthew's Anglican cemetery, Windsor. Rev. N. Jenkyn officiated at the graveside, and Mr. Chandler was the undertaker.
