Liverpool Courier 9 February 1914

DEATH OF LIVERPOOL CONSUL

Loss to Roman Catholic Charities

The death took place yesterday of Mr Emile Purgold of Ullet Road, Consul in this city for Hayti and Vice-Consul for San Domingo. Mr Purgold who was 50 years of age was a native of Port-au-Prince, Hayti, and some 22 years ago started in business in Liverpool as a general merchant. He was an ardent Roman Catholic and devoted himself very earnestly towards furthering movements connected with that faith, being treasurer of St George's Boys Industrial schools; a member of the committee controlling Fr Berry's Homes and concerned himself with other similar charities. Among his hobbies was that of golf and for a time he held the position of captain of the Woolton Golf Club, where he was very popular.

The funeral of Mr Purgold, who leaves a widow and a large family, takes place on Wednesday at Allerton Cemetery at 11.45 am, a Requiem Mass being celebrated at St Charles Church, Aigburth Road at 10.30 am.
