Frank Myatt (c1847-1924) Obituary

The death of Mr. Frank Myatt, of Harvey at the age of seventy-seven after a short illness removes from among us a loveable friend, and a good citizen, the sympathy of the district is extended to his bereaved family.

Mr. Myatt as a close personal friend of Dr. Harvey, came out to Western Australia some eighteen years ago with his wife and family, settling in Harvey and taking up land with the intention of citrus growing, in which pursuit he continued until the time of his death last Tuesday. The deceased, who only survived the death of his wife by eighteen months, leaves two sons, Thomas, of Harvey, Martin, of Perth, and one daughter, Miss Madelen Myatt, of Harvey to mourn their loss. The elder son, Frank, made the supreme sacrifice during the late war.

The remains were interred in the Harvey Cemetery on Wednesday afternoon, in the presence of a large gathering of friends, the chief mourners being Messrs Thomas and Martin Myatt, sons, and Dr. Harvey. Wreaths were sent from many sympathisers. Among those present were: — Mr. R. M. Wilson, A. Smith, W. Fears, K. Gibsone, C. Shenton, E. Davis, F. New, R. Hanks, C. Spurge, M. Barker, Mrs Barker, G. Clayton, W. Lassels, C. J. Smith, A. Pearson, A. Maloney, G. Palmer, L. Clifton, G. Burrows, W. J. Blight, O. C. Rath, W. Ash, F. Morris, P. McGrath, A. W. Stanton, W. Johnston, G. Martin, W. Berry, Dr. Kennedy, J. M. Johnstone, R. A. Johnstone and many others. Mr. Geo. Horrocks officiated at the graveside, and the funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. P. Ward.
