Woodville Examiner, 15 Nov 1918
REDWOOD - At Gisborne on November 13th 1918, George Henry, beloved husband of Josephine Redwood; aged 47 years. No flowers by request.
Mr Redwood, the well-known brewer of Woodville, left for Gisborne on November 4 to attend the funeral of his brother-in-law who had died from influenza, contracted the disease himself and died after a week's illness.
Flags were flown at half-mast in Woodville on receipt of the sad news of his death in Gisborne.
George Henry Redwood - aged 47
The sad and distressing news reached Woodville early yesterday morning that Mr George Henry Redwood, an old and very highly respected resident of the town, had died at Gisborne after a brief period of suffering from the prevailing epidemic. Mr Redwood had gone to the northern town because of the death of a brother-in-law and was detained there in consequence of the epidemic having dislocated the steamer service. He took ill himself and was confined to bed, but the attack at first appeared to be of a slight nature.
On Wednesday his wife received a letter from him stating that he had influenza but was recovering and hoped to be home in a week. The handwriting betrayed a shakiness unusual in his letters, but the missive contained certain business instructions which did not indicate that his customary mental vigor had been impaired.
The blow fell yesterday morning when Mrs Redwood received a message, delayed because of the telegraphic service congestion, that her husband had died on Wednesday.
The deceased gentleman was the third son of the late Charles Henry Redwood and a nephew of Archbishop Redwood.
He was born at Riverland, Blenheim in 1871 and came to Woodville, entering in conjunction with his brother Frank, into the brewery business. He soon began to take an active interest in public and sporting affairs, serving some years on the Borough Council, taking a leading part in the affairs of the Jockey Club and being at one time a prominent footballer.
He leaves a widow, three daughters and three sons to deplore the loss of a kind and loving husband and father. The bereaved family have the profound sympathy of many friends.
The body is being brought to Woodville for interment.
Borough Council Reference
Immediately after last night's meeting of the Woodville Borough Council had been formally opened, sympathetic reference was made to the sad occurrence.
The Mayor (Mr Horne) said that the town had received quite a shock that morning when the news came that an old and valued public man, Mr G. H. Redwood, had died in Gisborne, where he had gone on account of the death of a brother-in-law. The deceased gentleman had served on the council since first elected in 1901, during the period that important public works were carried out and in connection with them had done work of great value to the town. He served continuously for twelve years. He was in office when the water, gas and sewerage systems were installed.
He had retired from the council to contest an election for the Mayoralty and had not again sought office. His Worship moved:- "That this council express their deep sympathy with and offer their sincere condolences to the bereaved widow and family of the late Mr Redwood and place on record their appreciation of his valuable services to the town as a former Councillor and public spirited citizen."
Cr S. Turnbull, in seconding the resolution, said Mr Redwood had always taken a keen interest in the welfare of the town as a whole.
Cr E. R. Grinlinton also bore tribute to the memory of the deceased, stating that he had done a lot for Woodville and had always shown himself an able, energetic and progressive citizen. He was a most indefatigable officer of the Woodville District Jockey Club, a keen sportsman and a steward always at his post. He had also been for many years the secretary of the Pahiatua Licensed Victuallers' Association.
The motion was then put and carried in silence, all standing and adjourned for five minutes as a mark of respect to his memory.
* The funeral of the late George Henry Redwood took place yesterday, the large attendance showing the high esteem and regard in which the deceased gentleman was held by his fellow townsmen. The Very Rev. Dean McKenna officiated at St Columbkill's Church and at the graveside, the pall-bearers being Messrs Brady, Wrenn, Broad and Prendergast. The Woodville Borough Council, of which the deceased was formerly a member, was represented by the May (Mr H. P. Horne) and Cr E. W. Ruddick and the County Council by their chairman, Mr John Harris. The hearse was also followed by most of our leading residents and by many to whom Mr Redwood was a valued friend.
