From The North Midland Times newspaper, Friday 19 February 1937:
Obituary - The Late Mr. Albert Marriott
"The death occurred last week when Mr Albert Marriott, of Winchester, son of Mrs Edith and the late Mr Marriott, of Dyson Street, South Perth, passed away suddenly on Friday 13 at Arvo Hospital, Subiaco. News of his demise came as a shock to the residents of the district, as although many realised his condition was delicate, his indomitable spirit belied the fact that it was following only a very short illness that he passed away. The late Mr Marriott, who has been in the employ of Messrs A. G. and B. A. Leishman for the past ten years, came to Winchester 4½ years ago when he took over the management of "Gregorfields," Messrs Leishman's property. During his sojourn in the district Mr Marriott took an active interest in social life and sporting activities. He was an active and valued member of the Coorow Football Club, and in addition to being a member he was also Vice-Captain of the Winchester Tennis Club. The deceased was also a prominent figure in local show rings where his horsemanship always met with a fair measure of success. The late Mr. Marriott was of a quiet, unassuming manner and he endeared himself to all with whom he came in contact, and his relatives and many friends mourn his demise. The remains were interred in the Roman Catholic portion of Karrakatta Cemetery at 10 o'clock on Monday morning."
