THE SINGLETON ARGUS - Monday 7 Nov 1949
Mr Henry Taylor, better known as George, of 55 Kelso Street, Singleton, who died on Friday afternoon at the age of 81, belonged to an age when a lifetime of hard work and community service was accepted as part and parcel of the pioneer spirit and family responsibilities. During his life Mr Taylor was engaged in various occupations, including the, proprietorship of a Wood Yard in Singleton, as a Dairyman at Abbey Green, a Miner and an employee of the Prickly Pear Board. For many years he was connected with All Saints Church, Singleton, as Sexton, an honorary position that earned for him the esteem of hundreds of parishioners. Many years ago he met with an accident that caused the loss of an eye, but he met that misfortune with a fortitude that earned the admiration of a host of friends. Recently he was inmate of Dangar Cottage Hospital. Besides his widow, he is survived by nine children George ( Singleton ), Bell ( Mrs Saunders, Newcastle ), Mavis ( Mrs Conley, Singleton ), Hazel ( Mrs A C Dries, Singleton ), Alice ( Mrs A E Taylor, Singleton ), Elsie ( Mrs J E Murphy, Singleton ), Constance ( Mrs V Edmonds, Adamstown ), Noel ( Sydney ), and Gordon ( Singleton ),. The remains were interred in the C. of E. Cemetery, Whittingham, on Saturday afternoon, after a service at All Saints. Messrs. H J Bartrop and Son were the Funeral Directors.
