From The Irwin Index newspaper, Saturday 12 December 1931:
"Obituary - Much sympathy has been expressed in Carnamah with Mr. and Mrs. N. Somers on account of the sad loss sustained through the death of their infant son (Thomas Brian), aged eleven months, who died at the Three Springs Hospital on Sunday afternoon last after a brief illness. The sudden nature of the occurrence made the blow doubly hard for the bereaved parents, and everybody was deeply grieved. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon at the Winchester cemetery, the Rev. A. W. Curtis officiating. The tiny casket was borne to its last resting place by Messrs A. P. Tucker, J. K. Forrester, D. Walker and A. C. Bierman, and many floral tributes were placed on the grave."
