'Daylesford Advocate' 1 September 1904.
It is with extreme regret that we have to notice the deat h of Mr. James Lyall, who for the past nineteen years has b een continuously employed on the mechanical staff of this p aper. The sad event took place yesterday at his residence , Raglan St., at the age of 65 years. For the large numbe r of years above-mentioned, he has worked at this office an d printed and published the paper. We have to deplore the l oss of a good and faithful servant who up to three or fou r weeks ago was always at his post of duty when required, a nd never shirked work however how hard and unpleasant the t ask. He was well liked and generally respected and a larg e number of friends will join in sympathy for the bereave d widow and family of 4 sons and one daughter.
'Daylesford Advocate' 3 September 1904.
The Rev. Charles Pickering will conduct an In Memorial serv ice in the Baptist Church for the late Mr. James Lyall.
