DEATH.-It is with the greatest regret that we have to record the death of Mrs John Bunn, of Albert street,Mornington, the sad event taking place at her residence on Friday night.The deceased lady, who was very much respected, had a long and painful illness, and her death was not unexpected. Deceased and her family were very popular, as was testified by the large number of persons who attended the funeral at the Mornington cemetery on Sunday afternoon. The service was conducted by the Rev. J.Caldwell, in the absence of the Rev.Mr Woods, who was unable to attend.

BUNN. In sad and loving remembrance of my dear wife and our dear mother, who passed
peacefully away at Mornington on the 17th July, 1903.
Dear mother ,the husband you left behind,
Will keep your memory dear;
We never can forget the past,
The true, good wife you have been.
'Tis sinful, we know, to wish you were here,
But life is so lonely without one so dear.
A mother more loving ne'er dwelt on this earth,
Nor proved to her children a true mother's
(Inserted by her loving husband, John, and sons
Jack, Willie, and Eric, and daughter Emma.)

BUNN.In loving remembrance of my dear mother,Sarah Emily Bunn, who died on the 17th July,1903, Alfred-street, Mornington, aged 43 years.
'Tis just one year ago to-day, dear mother,
I do remember well,
We sat beside your dying bed,
To bid a long farewell.
We watched you suffer day by day,
It caused us bitter grief
To see you slowly pine away,
And could not give relief.
In her calm, silent grave she is sleeping;
Oh, love one, the dearest and best;
Hushed, hushed be all sorrow and weeping,
Our dear mother is only at rest.
(Inserted by her loving daughter and son-in-law,
Lizzie and Loo Gordon, of Rokewood Junction.)

The information I found was that ALFRED ERIC BUNN died on 3rd May 1969 and that he was the only child to JOHN THOMAS BUNN and SARAH EMILY COXHELL.
Do you have any information on when JOHN THOMAS BUNN passed away? Do you know the number of the house they lived in at Mornington Victoria at Albert Street.

Thank you for all you can find out.
It appears we had incorrect information about Alfred Eric Bunn being an only child.
My grandmother was Mary Alice Dean and known as Alice Bunn by marriage.
Alfred Eric Bunn & Alice Bunn had 3 children; Eric, Jack And my mother Norma Emily.
Is there any information on what Sarah Emily Bunn (coxhell) died of? Was it cancer?
I would like to visit albert street mornington of where they lived so a house number would be awesome
Thank you

by Morgan2409 on 2014-07-31 07:50:45

Its looking like the correct address should be Alfred Street, Mornington. If you get the death cert for Sarah Emily Bunn, it will give you the address.It will also name her children. I can look more tomorrow for the death of John Thomas Bunn.

OBITUARY.-The death occurred at Mornington on Monday night of Mr Thomas Coxhell, sen, a resident of the district for 50 years. Deceased, who had exceeded the allotted span by 10 years, enjoyed good health up to 2 years ago, but from then there was a gradual breakiug-down of the con- stitution. His mental faculties, however, were well sustained, and reminiscences of the early days, as recounted by him, were always in- teresting. Mrs Coxhell survives her husband, and of the surviving members of the family there are four sons and three daughters, all of whom are married. There are also 43 grand-children, and eight great grand-children. The deseased was of a retiring disposition, and was held in the highest esteem by a large circle of acquaintances. The funeral took place on Wednesday, and was largely attended.
