FUNERAL OF THE LATE MR GILLILAND
Last Tokens of Respect

On Monday afternoon, as a sad contrast to the glorious spring sunshine, the bereaved family of the late Mr William Albert Gilliland, together with a large number of friends, assisted in the last solemn rites of the Church by following to his last resting place a kind father, loving husband and firm friend. The late Mr Gilliland was a NCO (pensioned from the Army), and for a number of years, until his last illness laid waste to his constituation, an active preventative officer in His Majesty's Customs.
The deceased was always a prominent supporter of Friendly Societies, and one of the first to lend a hand to an ailing brother. In his social life he was an enthusiastic Mason, in which honoured body he held many marks of distinction. HE was also a Druid of the old school, who believed and practised the real tenets of Druidism - "Philanthropy and Brotherly Love". Good natured to a fault, and without an enemy in the wide world. On Monday afternoon the funeral cortege started from the deceased's residence in Folly Road at 1.45.
The coffin, of polished oak and heavy brass furniture, was literally covered with handsome wreaths, which bore a strong trubute to "Phil's" lamenting friends and relatives, who will never again fill that void caused by the empty chair. In the procession to the cemetary the Masons were represented by Bro P M Charles Pettifer, and the AOD (426) in Lodge regalia, Last Arches C Pettifer, C Sparrow, L Whitehead, H C Douglas, J Hart, R Clark, W Foord, Ruckman, T Godden, D Geddis, etc/ The Customs were represented by Messrs Duval, Watson, Prescott and Corrie.
At the cemetery, the Rev Parker (in the absence of the Rev E Husband) performed the last rites in a solemn and impressive manner. As the coffin was lowered we took our final farewell as we read upon the breast-plate: -
"WILLIAM ALBERT GILLILAND, Aged 56"

Among the handsome wreaths which were reverently laid at the graveside were: "A tribute of sincere sympathy, from the brothers of 426, AOD." "In loving memory of dear father, from Mother and Family"; "With deepest sympathy, from Mr and Mrs Riley"; "Deep sympathy from Mr Picher and Kitty"; "Deep sympathy from Lizzie and Mother"; "With loving sympathy from Mr and Mrs Charles Pettifer"; "From Collectors and Officers of HM Customs, Folkestone"; "To dear father, from the children"; "In loving memory of our dear father, from Arthur and Lily." etc

OBITUARY ARTHUR EDWARD HOPPER

Although ailing for the past few months, no immediate concern was felt for the health of Mr. E. A. Hopper until Tuesday night last, when his condition became suddenly alarming. Despite expert attention, he sank rapidly and passed away at his home in Greaves Street, shortly before midnight.

The late Mr. Hopper, who was the third son of the late Mr. Stephen Hopper, after which Hopper's Crossing is named, was born in the district a little over 65 years ago, and resided in Werribee for practically the whole of his life. For many years he followed the occupation of carpenter and painter and undertook contracts for the erection of dwellings in the district. He also extensively engaged in poultry farming, and was a recognised judge of show stock, being a constant and successful exhibitor at the Melbourne Royal and country shows. Among some of his successful hobbies was the rearing and disposal of Irish terriers. When the Werribee Coursing Club was at the height of his popularity Mr. Hoprer took an active interest in the sport and was a familiar figure at the plumpton, where he was usually engaged in the hare yards. Sympathy is felt for the bereaved wife and daughter who have been left to mourn their loss.

The remains were interred in the Werribee cemrtery on Saturday afternoon, when many district residents paid their last respects. The coffin was borne to the grave by Messrs. A. Smith, W. Pederick and F. Napthine (brothers-in-law) and L. Balfour (nephew). The pall was supported by Messrs. D. Shields, H. Smith and A. Miller (brother-in-laws), A. Hopper, junr. (nephew), and E. A. Stein- fort, J. King, W. Slattery and M. Reidy.

The service at the graveside was conducted by Rev. F. P. Edwards and the mortuary arrangements were in the hands of Mr. E. W. Jackson, the well-known Williamstown undertaker.
