Alfred Ernest Wall (1864–1917)

Mr. Alfred Wall, who had for over 20 years been foreman of the Model Bakery, Bradley-street, died at eight o'clock on Wednesday night under very sad circumstances. During the day Mr. Wall was at work and appeared to be in his usual state of health; but at two o'clock in the afternoon he sustained a seizure. He was immediately taken to his home in Bradley-street, where he was seen by a doctor, who ordered his removal to a hospital. He was taken to the Goulburn and District Hospital, and died in that institution at the hour named, the cause of death being hemorrhage of the brain. Mr. Wall was born in 1867 and was therefore about 50 years of age. He is survived by a widow, one son and one daughter. He was much respected by all who knew him. He was a member of the Coronation Lodge, Manchester Unity Oddfellows which he joined twenty years ago.
