The deceased is buried in the Wesleyan portion of the cemetery, plot number 8. The child's father was a well-known building contractor in the Sandstone area. In 1907, Mr John Bald's tender for erecting the State School at Sandstone for the amount of £533 ISs was accepted. He tendered for the building of the Shire Offices, supervised the building of a 165 ft x 69 ft stadium being built in the town and was the contractor for the erection of a new maternity ward at the Sandstone Hospital, the building of which was to commence in April of 1911, he having previously built the Sandstone Hospital Laundry in 1908.
