This event was held a few weeks before E. M. G. Eddy left his post as Chief Commissioner of the N.S.W. Government Railways. He was credited for making substantial improvements to the rail system while creating benevolent programs for workers and their dependents during a period of regional depression.
1897 Died after a month of illness. His body was interred to Waverley cemetery, Sydney.
The public funeral of Mr. Eddy at Sydney is reported to have furnished the largest demonstration of a similar character ever seen in that city, and the presence of three thousand railway men following the procession to the cemetery formed a well-deserved tribute to his memory.
