Obituary.
It is our painful duty to record the death of Mrs. Sarah Watman, wife of Mr. George Watman, an old resident of Crookwell. ... The funeral took place yesterday, and was largely attended. The Rev. S. Gilby conducted the services at the grave.

CROOKWELL
Today another death took place. Mrs. George Watman, residing with her husband in Crookwell, and a very old and respected resident, was taken suddenly ill. Dr. Fitzpatrick was immediately called, and did all that was possible to relieve her, but she died within an hour after. Great sympathy is expressed for her husband and relations.

CROOKWELL
Obituary.-I have to record the death of Mr. Joseph Derritt senior, a very old resident, aged seventy-six. He survived his wife, who had attained even more mature age, by only a few weeks. Mrs. George Watman also succumbed rather suddenly to a complaint she had been suffering from for some time, and which would naturally result in a sudden termination. Her funeral took place today. Both funerals were very largely attended, deceased being long resident and largely connected throughout the district.

What is the correct date of death and date of burial?

Thanks gbbo.

If that one is correct then death on 20 and burial on 22. But two other papers have death as 24.

Not ACI.
