The death occurred at Tyagarah on August 14, of George Robb, aged 73, following a short illness. He was an old and highly respected resident of the district. A motor car accident two years ago affected his health.

Rev. Robb, who was in charge of the Presbyterian church, at Mullumbimby for a number of years, was a brother. A widow survives, and a family of seven - three daughters and four sons. They are Mesdames Oke (Tyagarah), Perkins (Dorroughby), Sommerville (Mullumbimby) and Messers. John (Pamona, Queensland), Arthur (Moleton), William and Cecil (Tyagarah).

A sister is Mrs. Price (Brisbane), and brothers are Rev. John Robb (Dungog) and Alex. (Jamberoo).

The funeral took place in the Presbyterian portion of the Mullumbimby cemetery, Rev. R. H. Wotherspeen officiating at the graveside and at a prior service at the Tyagarah church.

There were many floral tributes, and a large attendance at the graveside. Pall-bearers were the sons Jonn, Arthur William and Cecil, and sons-in-law, G. Oke and T. Sommerville.
