Serg. Albert J. Cudlip
Regimental No. 589
Son of Hon. J. W. Cudlip
And beloved husband of Annie Cudlip
Born 1864
Died March 15, 1907
A place is vacant in our hearts that never can be filled
From the Annual Report: "The death of Reg. No 589 Sergeant A. J. Cudlip, as a result of an accident at Forty Mile, in March last, was particularly sad. He was married and living with his wife at the detachment at that place. Coming home one evening he slipped and fell off a foot bridge over the slough, striking his head on the ice below. He was unconscious when picked up and never rallied, passing away the next day. The funeral took place in Dawson and was one of the largest I have seen here. Sergeant Cudlip was one of our oldest non-commissioned officers in point of service and a man of splendid physique. He was one we could ill afford to lose, a credit to the force in every way and respected by all who knew him." He had been in charge of the Forty Mile detachment for over 2 years.
