Note:

Died on Wedding Day SAD DEATH OF MR. A SMEDE. Very sad circumstances surrounded the death of Alfred Smede, in Sydney on Thursday. Deceased was attending to the overhead tram-way wires when he fell through a skylight, a distance of 14 ft., injuring his spine. He was conveyed to Sydney Hospital, and passed away on Saturday morning. Deceased who was a son of Mr. and Mrs. John Smede, of Mudgee, was 48 years of age, and a native of Cooyal. The sad feature of his death was the fact that he was to have been married last Saturday to Miss Daisy Walsh, daughter of the late Mr. Thomas Walsh and Mrs. Walsh, of Gulgong. The only persons present at his death were his brother and sister in law, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Smede, Mr. C. Robinson, brother-in-law, Mr. R. Drew, brother-in-law, and his fiancee, Miss Walsh. Besides the sorrowing father and mother, he is survived by the following brothers Ernest, Harry, Edgar, Herbert, James, Samuel, George, and three sisters, Mesdames George Walker, Tottenham; Charles Robinson, Pipeclay; Mrs. H. Knight, Camboon, Rylstone. The body was brought to Mudgee this morning, and will be interred in the R.C. portion of the general cemetery this afternoon. Deceased was greatly esteemed by all who knew him. For many years he was an enthusiastic member of the Cooyal Cricket Club. Deep sympathy is felt for his relatives and fiancee (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Monday 28 July 1924, page 23).
