Cowell (Stanley) and loved brother of Elsie (dec.), Gladys (Mrs Nicholls, Melbourne), Archie (Traralgon), Irene (Mrs Ferguson, Richmond), Frank (dec.), Claude (Stanley), Gwen (dec.); aged 44 years. Accidentally drowned.
THREE DROWNED WHEN FISHING VESSEL STRUCK REEF AT NIGHT - Raymond Etchell (34), his son John (6) and Wilfred Marcus Alan Cowell (44), all of Stanley, lost their lives when Etchell's fishing launch 'Telopea' struck a reef off Guyton Point, on the north-eastern corner of Robin's Island, early on Saturday morning. Residents of the island who saw the Telopea ashore on the beach about 9.30 a.m. discovered tho bodies of the two men. With the pedal radio service at the island temporarily out of order, first news of the tragedy was taken to Smithton by Mr William Holyman, who arrived there by launch at 4.30 p.m. on Saturday.
The Telopea left Stanley I at 10 o'clock on Friday night for the crayfishing grounds of Hunter's Island and should have been off Robins Island about midnight. The reef, which runs out from the bluff at Guyton Point for about 200 yards contains three pinnacles at spaced intervals. They are nearly awash at high tide. In the darkness they are almost invisible and sailors give the point a wide berth. Etchell had a good knowledge of the island, and would have been aware of the dangers of the reef.
Local fishermen state that Friday night was fairly calm and clear, and find it difficult to know why the boat should have been close enough inshore to strike the reef.
As both bodies were without coats or boots it is thought the men made an effort to swim ashore. The presence of the child, John Etchell, on the wrecked vessel was not suspected until contact was made with Stanley. His body was found yesterday morning about 100 yards from the wreck. Plans to take Dr. D. G. Packham and the police to thc Island yesterday by air were upset by rough weather, which grounded planes in the area.
Sen. Constable R. Lockett and Trooper S. Crocket, of Stanley, were taken to the Island by Etehel's brother, Mr Oscar Etchell, in his fishing boat, the Cutty Sark, yesterday morning.
In the course of an extremely rough passage, with gales estimated at about 50 miles per hour, both police officers sustained cuts and bruises. After another hazardous voyage the three victims were taken to Smithton late yesterday afternoon.
An inquiry will be opened in Smithton to-day when evidence of identification will be taken by the Coroner (Mr R. H. Atkinson). Etchell is survived by his widow and a three-year-old daughter and Cowell by his widow and a small son and daughter

29 March 1910 - Inquest at LOWER HUTT
... Mr Haselden, S.M., held an inquest at the Courthouse, Lower Hutt, yesterday, on Agnes Noeline Davis, aged three months. According to the evidence of the mother, Cecilia Hamilton Davis, the child was a twin, and was born on 25th December. Witness was housekeeper to Leonard Hobbs, labourer, Upper Belmont. It seemed well on Saturday night, and at 2 o'clock next morning witness fed it. At 5 the same morning she looked at it and it was then dead.
The Coroner asked witness how it was that the dead child was so emaciated; but witness could not account for this. It had been ill and she fed it upon hygienic food. She believed it the stronger of the twins. Its sister appeared to be much more delicate. Both children slept in a perambulator.
Constable Mackenzie elicited from witness that the perambulator was big enough for both children. There was no window in the bedroom in which the children slept. The only access was by a door off the passage, but there was a fireplace in the room. The room was not close.
Leonard Hobbs said the mother of the child came to keep house for him about three years ago. He had to get someone to look after his children as his wife was not living with him. He supposed she would be between 20 and 21 to-day. When the twins were born there was no medical man present, but a nurse was in attendance and she said the twins were delicate from birth.
Dr Mirams, who made an examination of the body of the child at the court, said death was due to convulsions. This was common in children sufffering from malnutrition, and this was due to improper feeding or want of assimilation of food. After hearing the evidence of the mother he judged the convulsions to be due to the want of assimilation of food. He saw nothng in the case that showed neglect of the deceased on the part of its parents.
Constable Mackenzie said the bedroom in which the perambulator was, was badly ventilated and very stuffy. At the Coronoer's request witness weighed the deceased in her clothes and gave the weight at 5lb (2.49kg)
The Coronoer found that death was due to convulsions

In loving memory of my dear husband, Christopher Robinson Hobbs, who passed away on 19th November, 1918
Sad to-day, our thoughts do wander
To a grave not far away,
Where they laid my dear husband
Just a year ago to-day

Words would fail our love to tell,
But in Heaven we hope to meet you,
Jesus doeth all thing well

None know how sad the parting
Nor what the farwell cost,
But God and His loved Angels
Have gained what we have lost
- Inserted by his loving wife

In loving memory of my dear father who departed this life 19th November, 1918

To wait for cure was all in vain,
But God above who thought it best
Did cure his pain and give him rest
- Inserted by his loving daughter and son-in-law, Ada and Charles Walters

In loving memory of our dear father, who departed this life 19th November 1918
Dad is gone, but not forgotten,
Nor the good advice he gave,
Sweetest thoughts shall ever linger
Round our darling father's grave

A better father never lived,
Nor one more kind and true,
His equal in this weary world
You'll very rarely find

His heart was always in his home,
He tried and did his best,
Until a message came one day,
God called him home to rest
- Inserted by his loving daughter and son-in-law, Myrtle and Robert Wakefield

In loving memory of our dear faher who departed this life 19th November 1918
It's one sad year ago to-day
Since one we loved was called away
When days are dark and friends are few,
Oh! dear father, how we long for you
- Inserted by his loving son and daughter-in-law, Reg and Elizabeth

In loving memory of my dear uncle, who departed this life 19th November 1918
Manly and true in all his ways,
Slow to condemn and quick to praise,
Ready to help in time of meed,
Gentle in thought as well as deed.
With his loving smile and gentle face,
No one on earth can fill his place
- Inserted by his loving nephew, Robert August
