Biography

"THE LATE MR. FRANK GILLETT.

Mr. Frank Gillett, late of the 3rd Pioneers, A.I.F., passed away on Sunday last at his late residence, 31 Bay-road, North Fremantle, after a long illness caused through war effects. He was born at Quorn, South Australia, and came to this State at the age of nine years. Up to the time he enlisted he resided in the Norseman and Coolgardie districts, and after three years' active service he returned and lived at Narrogin for three years. For the past three years he was a resident of North Fremantle. In the Narrogin and Norseman districts he was well-known as a prominent footballer and cricketer, and was highly respected and popular with all classes.

The funeral took place on Monday at Karrakatta Cemetery, where the remains were interred in the Methodist portion. The casket was borne to the graveside covered by the Union Jack, and the pall bearers were Messrs. F. Ager, vice-president, and L. Harvey, secretary (T.B. Soldiers and Sailors' Association), R. C. Jefferies, W. E. Worrall, R. W. Williams, and F. Miller. The Rev. C. A.

Gillett (wife), Thomas and Albert Gillett (sons), Gladys Gillett, (daughter), Mrs. S. Gillett (mother), Mrs. R. Willcocks (mother-in-law), Messrs. A. B. and A. Gillett (brothers), Mesdames A.
