History

Albert William Bodycomb was born 1863 in Victoria, Australia to Thomas C. Bodycomb (1829-1919) and Mary nee Davies (1829-1902).


A. W. Bodycomb was a foreman of the Phoenix Foundry in 1901.[1]


DROWNED IN FIVE INCHES OF WATER.
BALLARAT. Sunday.
A drowning accident happened at the residence of Mr. William Penney, Drummond-street south, this afternoon, when Arthur Bodycomb, aged 1 year and 11 months, the son of Mr. A. W. Bodycomb, a foreman at the Phoenix foundry, was suffocated in 5in. of water. Mr. Bodycomb was on a visit to his father-in-law, Mr. Penney, and he took the child into the back yard to have a look at a horse. Mr. Bodycomb entered into conversation with a neighbour, and whilst the father’s back was turned the child climbed to the edge of a large trough to play with the water, and fell in. All means were taken to restore animation, and Dr. Martin was summoned, but these proved unavailing.[2]


Albert William Bodycomb died 5 June 1945 in a private hospital in Kew (Victoria, Australia).
