OBITUARY MR. GILLOT ARDRON.
The death occurred on Wednesday last, of one of Cessnock's best known and most highly respected citizens in the person of Mr. Gillot Ardron, Rawson-street, Aberdare.
Deceased was 77 years of age, and had resided in the Cessnock district for 25 years. The late Mr. Ardron was a great rifle shot, and was captain of the Cessnock Rifle Club. He was prominently associated with Freemasonry, having first joined Lodge Peninsula at Stockton over 52 years ago. He was a Past master of Lodge Peninsula and also Lodge Thistle Kilwinning, Minmi, and had held active office right up to the time of his death with Lodges Cessnock, Caledonia, and Paxton, all of which he was associated with, and was a trustee of the Lodge Cessnock property for many years past.
He was a prominent church man, and was associated. with the Church of England at Aberdare.
The late Mr. Ardron is survived by a family of four sons, and four daughters, and was predeceased by his wife some two and a half years ago.
The funeral took place in the Church of England portion of the Aberdare cemetery yesterday, and was largely attended. Rev. Tracey conducted a service at the Aberdare Church of England, and also at the graveside.
In paying a tribute to Mr. Ardron's memory, Mr. Tracey said:- One has passed from our visible company whom we could ill afford to lose, and yet, being unseen, he is nearer to us in spirit and in life than ever before. A funeral is never always sadness there is the joy amongst us to-day that Paradise is richer for the presence of him who has entered in. The Church he loved, and served so devotedly will long remember him, and ever miss from its seen number, one whose devoted loyalty and spiritual uprightness were an inspiration to all who were privileged to worship and to serve with him. Words are not sufficient in which to express all that his presence and his fellowship meant to those who knew and loved him. For he was a man whom one could really love his simple gentleness, his real humility, and his deep love for God marked him as a bright gem in the crown of God. Our Faith in the Communion of Saints, the Fellowship of Christian unbroken by death, will always bind him to us here in a bond of deep devotion, a real fellowship in God. His soul rests now with the God whom he loved and served so well- and of our charity and our fellowship, with the unseen let us pray for him for it can never be wrong to pray for those who still live yet are unseen, nor can prayers for those whom we love whether present or passed across ever be inacceptable in the throne-room of God's heart.
Gillett (sic) Ardron, rest in peace!

These comments are getting a bit long. You might like to take them off after you add them to your tree.
I notice you don't have burial places for many of them in your tree.

William Robert Ardron died 23 November 1944 when he fell 1800ft. down a mine shaft at the New Occidental Gold mine. He's buried at Cobar (C of E)
Ernest St.Clair Ardron buried on 5 July 1958 at northern suburb crematorium sydney.
Marguerite who married James Batey died in 12 August 1977 at Cessnock probably but not sure buried same place as father and mother, Aberdare. OR perhaps at Beresfield, New South Wales, where Hannah Ardron/Hamilton Lowe was buried on 4 July 1969.
Also at Beresfield is Edward Ardron, buried on 28 September 1960
Infant Jessie I don't know but she died in Stockton 28 November 1898 (b: 10 May 1897).
Amy May Ardron, I'm not sure she married Christie Michael Chiarelli 1902-1937,who died when a mine caved in and he's buried in Cessnock so maybe she is there also.
Elsie Isobel m: David Hynd and died 18 April 1985 in Chatswood so maybe Northern Suburbs.
Arthur Gillott Ardron, I don't know but he died in Cessnock 11 October 1992.

Dear janilye,
I am the great grand daughter of Gillott ARDRON and Sarah WILSON. My grandmother was Hannah ARDRON and she was 1st married to Ernest Henry HAMILTON and then to George LOWE. I have been a family researcher for some years and do have data and photos which may be of interest to you.I was born and raised in Cessnock and our family lived in the Ardron home which Gillott occupied from 1910. My parents lived there until my father's( Cecil James HAMILTON) death in 2003.I have made contact with an Ardron relative in Yorkshire England, and she has been a great help. If you wish to contact me, please feel free as I am only too willing to share.

Sincerely
Hammo26
