Note: BIOGRAPHY: Obituary from a local paper on 8th Sep 1960: The death occurred last Thursday of Arthur Frederick Clissold, at his residence in Old Bathurst Road, Emu Plains.

Aged 83 years at the time of his death Mr. Clissold was born in St Mary's in December 1877. He has lived in the Penrith district all off his life, taking up residence at Emu Plains on his marriage in 1898.

Since then he had lived in the same house for the 62 years.

He came to Penrith with his parents at the age of four years. His father, Thomas Daniel Clissold, built the Nepean Cottage Hospital, Penrith School of Arts and several well known buildings in the Penrith district.

Mr Fred Clissold was the last surviving member to work on the construction of the Nepean Cottage Hospital.

After his early building experiences, he became orchardist at Emu Plains, growing citrus fruits. He then joined the Railways Department, working at Penrith, Enfield and Vally Heights, retiring from Penrith to his property at Emu Plains.

Always interested in sport, Mr Clissold played cricket for Emu Plains, rugby union for Castlereagh and later became a cricket umpire, in an unofficial capacity for Emu Plains teams.

From his marriage until about six years ago, he was church warden for St Paul's Church of England, Emu Plains. He was also member of the cemetery trust for a number of years before reaching the compulsory retiring age.

At the age of 19 Mr Clissold joined the Protestant Alliance and the Sons of Temperance, with which he kept an active associationfor the rest of his life.

He is survived by his wife, who was, prior to her marriage, Elizabeth Ruth Starkey, of Kingswood, and four children.

The children are Doris (Mrs Campbell, Ettalong), Amy (Emu Plains), Vera (Mrs C Hayes, Canberra), and Arthur (Emu Plains).

Two children who pre deceased him were Alma (Mrs C Adamson), and Thomas (missing , presumed killed at Rabaul, 1942).

Mr Clissold is also survived by 10 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

An old friend of Mr Clissold's, former Rector of Emu Plains, the Rev. Morris (who is now an Army Chaplain) officiated at the funeral on Friday. Another friend, Mr Mervyn Hunter, assisted at the funeral service in St Paul's.

A large representative gathering followed the funeral from the funeral parlours of John Price and Sons, Penrith, to his last resting place at St Paul's cemetery. There were a great wealth of floral tributes.
