Notes: Garrard was a sitting MP for Central Cumberland. Williamson is included as a Labor candidate in the general lists of all papers, but is not mentioned in either the Workman or Worker. He is included here as an Independent Labor candidate. The Australian Workman lists J C L Fitzpatrick as an Independent Labor candidate before and after the election. He is listed as a Free Trade supporter in every other source, and given his long career in state parliament never involved the Labor Party, the affiliation Independent Free Trade seems more appropriate.
