British Army service records, however, show a Pte. F M Blunderfield, purchased a discharge from the Royal Horse Guards (The Blues) on the 30th Apr 1883. There is therefore a discrepancy with the record that shows him arriving in Australia on the 5th May 1882. It seems unlikely that he would have been able to travel to Australia whilst still in the Army.

The Weekly Journal 'South Africa' - 30 Mar 1895
Mr. Powys, who has for a long time past agitated for the construction of the Umbilo tram line, picked the first piece of ground the other day at Durban. There was a fairly large concourse of people interested, including the Borough Engineer (Mr. Fletcher), Mr. Harvey (of the Tram Company), Mr. Hadfield, Mr. Blunderfield (Inspector Tram Company), and Mr. Jameson (Borough Engineer’s office). Town Councillors were conspicuous by their absence. The ceremony was commenced without much formality. After divesting himself of coat and hat, Mr. Powys wielded the pick with vigour, and soon had a good piece of the road broken up. Subsequently, he addressed a few remarks to the assembled spectators, and sketched out the history of the movement in favour of the tram line. The coolie gang immediately afterwards took possession of the road, and, by noon, had a large portion of the track broken up. The Engineer expects to have the work finished in two or three months. The cost is estimated at £3000, and the distance is upwards of three quarters of a mile.

In 1904, there is an item (102) on Page 228 of the Auditors Report for the Natal Treasury, which details a grant of £134-15s-0d paid to the widow of the late F M Blunderfield of the Natal Government Railway.

Obituary for George Edgar Blunderfield

On November 19th 2018, George Edgar Blunderfield passed away peacefully and without regret at the North Shore Hospice after a life well lived!

George was born in Winnipeg Manitoba to Edgar and Elenore (McLaren) Blunderfield on July 9th 1939. He grew from humble beginnings in a large, loving family that knew the value of laughter. George was an active member of the CYO where he met his wife Arlene (Jestadt). Married in 1963, he moved to Kitchener, Ontario, received an advanced marketing degree from the University of Waterloo and had two children. George enjoyed bowling, golf, travelling and the Lion’s Club where his larger than life personality made him the highlight of Octoberfest events. Above all he was an adventurer and storyteller who loved to take his family on the road with camping trips across Canada and throughout the US.

George brought his infectious energy and integrity to a 20-year career with Benson & Hedges. He was an inspirational leader as he rose to become the National Sales Manager in Montreal. He would eventually return to Vancouver to fulfill his wife’s dream to open Arlene’s Interiors in 1984. Joined by their children, the business grew to 3 locations and was highly regarded for over 28 years, perhaps best known for treating everyone like family. George was respected for how he stood by Arlene during a long illness until her death in 2004. He successfully sold the family business in 2011 and retired, to enjoy time with his growing family and marriage to Frayceane (Yardley) in 2016. Upon learning of his diagnosis of Dementia and Melanoma in 2017, George openly shared his journey, while remaining hopeful and positive to the end.

Full of warmth and kindness, quick with a joke or a song, he knew how to live life well, to dance and laugh and to bring a smile to another, George will be sadly missed by all who were fortunate enough to know him.

George is Predeceased by; his parents and his wife, Arlene, along with beloved siblings Fred, Anne, Monica and Margarite.

Survived by; his wife Frayceane, children Karen (Chris) and Russ (Debbie), Grandsons Christopher (Jesyca) and Alexander and great-grandchildren Hunter and Emma as well as sisters Ella May and Bernice. He will also be missed by his extended family including step daughters Laura, Lorna, Leslie & Lisa.

The family would like to thank the many nurses and doctors that cared for George at Lions Gate Hospital, Oncology department, Palliative care on the 4th & 7th floor, and the North Shore Hospice.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in George’s name to the Lion’s Gate Hospital Foundation or The Alzheimer’s Society.

Funeral followed by a reception to be held on Monday, December 10th at 10am at the Burquitlam Funeral Home.

Frayceane (YARDLEY).
