Always endeavouring to do good, and cheerfully chatting with all with whom he came in contact, deceased was a favourite of everyone's. Up till but a short time before he died, "Daddy" Burgess, as he was familiarly called, kept moving, neither memory nor intellect being in any way impaired. His sickness was of but brief duration, the system apparently running right down. The deceased was born at Cheeseborough, in the county of Somersetshire, England in 1819. He was married fairly young to Miss Grace Difford, and came with his wife to this state in 1851.

He was sexton of St Mary Magdalene Church for over 30 years. He leaves behind one son, Mr John Burgess, and one daughter, Mrs W J Thompson both of St Marys.

    The funeral, which took place on Wednesday afternoon, was in one or two aspects a wide departure from the ordinary course of things. The old gentleman had for a long time "rejoiced in the Lord", and since his expressed assurance was "its ……….determined that songs, ………departure from earth. Accordingly he requested that pupils of this parochial school, with members of the choir, should sing some favourite hymns in the house where the body lay, afterwards leading the funeral procession with melody of like character. It is pleasing to report that in both particulars the request was complied with. Rev F J Harris read a portion of Scripture and offered prayer in the house, and when the body was taken into the church, delivered a very impressive address. The remains were carried, principally by the grandsons, to their resting place in the C.E. portion of the general cemetery, the cortege being lengthy and representative in token of universal esteem in which deceased was held.
