DEATH Mr. E. H. Rayner MUDGEE lost a well-known citizen early last evening, when Mr. Edgar Herbert Rayner died in a local private hospital after a brief illness, aged 63 years. Deceased, who was born in the district, resided here for the greater part of his life. Of late years he followed the occupation of a building contractor, and erected many fine homes in town and country. He was a member of one of the fine old pioneer families which had played a most important part in the development of the Mudgee district. His venerable father has reached the great age of 93 years, and is still hale and hearty at the family home at McDonald's Creek. Quite a number of brothers and sisters are among the most highly esteemed residents of Mudgee. A widow, four sons and two daughters are also left to mourn, and to the bereaved ones the "'Guardian" extends its deepest sympathy. The funeral left deceased's late home in Horatio Street this afternoon after a short service by the Rev. Mr. McCall, and proceeded to the Church of England portion of the general cemetery. From near and far the people came to pay their last sad tribute of respect, and local builders marched in the sad procession. The arrangements were in the hands of Mr. J. C. Swords (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Thursday 27 January 1938, page 4).
