  • 29 Jul 1911, DEATH OF MR. GEORGE STIRLING.
    It will be learnt with regret that Mr George Stirling of Richmond, died on Thursday after an illness which lasted for seven weeks. One of the best known men in Melbourne, he was esteemed by all who had dealings with him. The establishment of which he was the head was founded by his father in 1854, and conducted successfully under the title of George Stirling and Sons. His father's death in 1884 left him and his brother, the late Mr Belton Stirling, who died in 1901, to carry on the business, which has since become so extensive. Muscicians, both amateurs and professionals, know something of Mr. Stirling's skill as an organist and pianist, and some of them are indebted to him in no small way for the advice, instruction, and encouragement, he so freely gave them to make them proficient.
    His services in various churches in the city and suburbs were generously given. The late Mr. Bosisto was an uncle. The well-known surgeon, Dr. R. A. Stirling, is his only surviving brother. Besides two sisters, he leaves a widow and four sons.4
