SAID ADAN's funeral was well attended, with 'relays of bearers' as the body was conveyed on a bier from the 'Afghan camp' along Bayley Street to the 'Mahommedan section of the cemetery'. 'At the grave there was the usual lengthy service and food and coins were distributed among those present' (West Australian 31 Dec, p.5).
