On the 7th May, at his residence, All Nations Hotel, Main road, Mr George Bond, late of Margate, deeply regretted by all who knew him.[3]

FUNERAL NOTICE.-The friends of the late GEORGE BOND are respectfully invited to follow his remains to the place of interment, the Ballarat Cemetery, This day, the 9th inst. The funeral procession to move from his late residence, the All Nations Hotel, Main road, at three o'clock. ALFRED MARSHALL, Undertaker, Bray's Buildings, Main road.[4]

Yesterday Mr Bond, the late proprietor of the "All Nations" hotel, Main Road, was interred in the Ballarat Cemetery. The deceased was a member of the A. O. F., and belonged to Court Unity, which court he had joined soon after its establishment on Ballarat. On this occasion his remains were followed to the grave by about 100 members of the order, about 80 of whom belonged to Court Unity. Shortly after two o'clock the members of the court assembled at their place of meeting, in the Mechanics' Institute, and thence proceeded to the residence of the deceased. Here C. R. Sheppard read the charge to the brethren of the order, usually delivered on such solemn occasions. The body was then conveyed to the Cemetery, the brethren preceding the hearse, immediately followed by the officers of the court, in accordance with the usage of the order. Upon arriving, the body was conveyed to the grave by four of the brethren, the pall-bearers being P. S. C. R. Borrowman, Bros. Cray, Cooper, and Deutsch. The service of the Church of England was read in a very impressive manner by the Rev. Mr Floyd, after which C. E. Sheppard delivered a short exhortation to the brethren assembled. The ceremony being completed, the brethren returned to their court room in reversed order to the manner in which they walked to the grave, viz, following the hearse instead of preceding it, and the officers of the court heading the procession of the brethren, instead of bringing up the rear. In addition to the members of Court Unity several brethren of the sister courts on Ballarat, viz,-Little John and Court Western, were present. The arrangements were conducted by Mr Marshall.[5]
