From: The Advocate Melbourne, Thursday 09 March 1933, page 33

MR. MATHEW McGRATH.
On Sunday, February 5, at his residence. Redesdale, the death took place, of Mr. Mathew McGrath. Mr. Mc-Grath, who had been in failing health for the last ten months, was the youngest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Patrick McGrath, of Kimbolton where he was born 52 years ago. He carried on contracting work for the Mclvor and Strathfieldsaye shires for many years and was noted for his painstaking care and practical knowledge. For some time he was clerk of works for the Country Roads Board, and gave every satisfaction. He was also clerk of works for the Maryborough Shire at the time he became ill. During the last few years he partnered Mr. T. Long, of Knowsley, in many contracting works. The late Mr. McGrath was highly respected throughout the district, and made many firm friends wherever he went. He was attended during his illness by the Rev. Fr. O’Dee, of Heathcote, who administered the last rites of the Church, and also by Rev. Fr. Murphy. His remains were taken to the Church of St. Laurence, Redesdale, where Mass was offered up by the Rev. Fr. Murphy for the repose of his soul. The late Mr. McGrath was a very devout Catholic. He leaves a sorrowing wife, three sons, and four daughters, one son having predeceased him thirteen years ago, to mourn the sad loss of a loving and devoted husband and father. He also leaves two brothers and two sisters, a brother and sister having predeceased him many years ago. The funeral to Axedale Cemetery was largely attended, there being over sixty motors following the cortege. The polished cedar casket was carried to the grave by Cr. J. Long and Messrs. M. Sheedy, T. Long and B. Caelli. The pall-bearers were Messrs. J. Mangan, T. Mangan, J. Tranter. J. Madden, F. Madden, and M. McAuliffe. Rev. P. O’Sullivan, Bendigo, officiated at the graveside, and Messrs. Fizelle and Mulqueen had charge of the funeral arrangements. The following councillors were present: Cr. J. Long, McIvor Shire; S. Doak and F. Orr. Strathfieldsaye Shire; and J. O Sullivan and P.McNiff, of Metcalfe Shire.
