Sidney Oakes ran a bakery in Heidelberg Rd, Alphington 1880-1900.
Percy’s older brother, Leopold Stanley Oakes, followed in his father’s footsteps and trained as a baker. He also died comparatively young, aged just 29 years in 1893, leaving a young widow Emma. She died just two years later.
The other brother, Herbert Harold Stewart Oakes (1861-1941) owned a wood yard and a hay and corn store in Alphington for many years. He is also listed as running the ‘Alma Bakery’ in 1901, possibly having taken over that business from his father following his mother’s death. HHS Oakes served as a Heidelberg Shire Councillor 1905-1915, representing the Alphington/Ivanhoe Riding. See [L7].
