Death of Mrs. S. Radnell The following is a reprint from 'Inglewood Advertiser' 2/9/1921 Obituary
The deather occurred on Thursday, 25th August of Mrs. Sarah Radnell. The deceased lasy was highly esteemed in the town and district for her fine life, and she leaves a record behind her that might well be envied. Her life was a reflection of the faith that inspired her, and was the secret source of her long life. Born in Cambridge, England, on March 13th 1828, she Sailed in the sailing vessel "Mary Shepherd" on 15th December 1848, and landed in Victoria on April 3rd, 1849. She arrived in Tarnagulla in the year 1853, and had resided here ever since.
She leaves the following direct descendants - 13 children; 61 grand-children; and 108 great grand-children 180 in all still living.
Many of her descendents laid down their lives in defence of the Empire, and practically all others who could go, served. There are a few in the whole State who could point t osuch a fine record as that of the deceased. Up to a few years ago she enjoyed good health - in fact right up to the end of the heath she was winderful. As liong as she was able she constantly attended the Presbyterian Church, and it was a great treat to she the dear old sol joining the service - sitting in her pew with hands shaking, but although weak in body, strong in soul.
Her reimains were laid to rest in the Tarnagulla Cemetery, the service being conducted by the Rev. J.A. Souter. The pall-bearers were six of the sons and the undertaker, Mr. Wilsmore.

Death of Charles Radnell. Obituary 8/3/1890 Extract from 'Tarnagulla and Llanelly Courier.'
Only a fortnight ago, we recorded the deaths of two old residents of the district, in the demise of Mr. W.S. Lewis ans Mr. R. Gibbs, and this week two more of the pioneers of Tarnagulla have passed away, Mr.J. Kerr, saddler and Mr. Charles Radnell, bootmaker, having been called to a better home to recive their reward. By the deaths of these gentlemen, two places of buisness are closed and a good opening is left for an enterprising tradesman in either line. Tomorrow, (Sunday) evening at 7 o'clock the Reverend J.A. McLellan will preach a funeral sermon in the Presbyterian Church, touching on the deaths of the deceased gentlemen.
Scarecely had the sad news of the death of Mr. Kerr become know before the intelligence of the decease of another of our old identities was upon us in the persoin of Mr. Charles Radnell, Who dies on Wedenesday afternoon, after a painfull illness from disease of the kidneys. Mr. Radnell had been suffering more of less for the past twenty years, from piles and the disease of which he died. The latter complaint afflected him so seriously during the past few weeks that he was compelled to relinquish work, while his sufferings during the last weekwere of the most painful kind, which great fortitude. Finding the end was approaching, all his children were communicated with and were present at the time of his death. Dr. MacDonald was unceasing in his attention to the deceased and all endeavours to alleviate the pain.
Mr. Radnell had carried on the buisness of bootmaker in this town for a grreat number of years and was regarded as a thoughly competent and expert tradesman. He was much respected for his uprightness and geniality of character and his many friends were sorry to here of his end. He was always to the front in any movement bearing on public matters in respect to the improvement of the town and rendered valuable assistance year after year in the carrying to a successful issue our annual fete, where he was always to be found at his post attending to the various duties allotted to him, which were carried out in a most satisfactory manner. Mr. Radnell arrived in this colony in 1849 and the gold rush breaking out, he made his way here in 1853 and settled down, and has resided here ever since. He could therefore claim to be the almost without exception, the oldest resident of the place. He was 63 years of age and leaves a wife and large family of 12 children (all of whom are able to do for themselves, the majority of them being married) to mourn the loss of husband and parent. We deeply sympathise with the bereaved ones left behind and they have the sincere sympathy of a large circle of friends.
The funeral took place on Thursday afternoon when a large number followed the remains to their last resting place in the Tarnagulla Cemetery -where the Rev. J.A. McLellan read the burial service of the Presbyterian Church of which the Deceased was a member of the committee. The Mortuary arrangements were carried out by Mr.W.Roper.
