John H. Culpin
On 18 April 1919, after a day-trip to Melbourne, Culpin was returning to Ballarat when the train stopped at the Gordon Station. He left the train to have a cigarette. However, when the train started to move off Culpin made a dash for the carriage door – he grabbed the handle, but lost his footing and fell under the train. His body was too badly mangled to be returned to Ballarat, as a consequence he was buried at the Gordon Cemetery.
