Newcastle Evening Chronicle Death Notice
« on: Tuesday 22 May 07 14:28 BST (UK) »
I see from the indexes on Genuki that there is a death notice in the Newcastle Evening Chronicle on 31 May 1905 for my guncle James Robson.  He was 14 at the time of death and died in an accident at the local pit.

Could anyone advise me how to obtain a copy of this death notice, or would anyone visiting the Civic Centre (I think that's where the papers are now held) be able to provide a transcript for me?

Many thanks

Have you seen this report of his death on the Durham Mining Museum site?

Many thanks Ecnap (Barbara?)

I had seen that report on the Durham Mining Site previously, a most unpleasant way for a young boy to die.

I was just wondering what the paper had actually said, to see which (if any) other family members were mentioned.

There might be an account of his death in the local newspaper and perhaps a funeral notice and obituary. Lots of family information in the latter 2.

An accident would also be noted by a Coroners inquest report in the newspaper.
And if you are lucky the Coroner's actual papers might have survived.

Many thanks for your reply Frek.

The Newcastle Evening Chronicle or the Newcastle Advertiser would be the local papers, so if I can find out where to access them online I would do so.

Unfortunately I'm about 130 miles from Newcastle, so I can't get to the archives/civic centre in person.

Barbara,

I'm not sure where you are (other than that you're 130 miles from Newcastle :)) but if you could get to the British Library Newspaper Archive at Colindale they have the Newcastle Evening Chronicle 1885 to date.

Any good to you?

Thanks Anna

I might manage a trip down there sometime- its only about 150 miles the other way :)

At least I now know that there are archived copies in existence, and where they are.

LOL :D

Well, if you're feeling flush you could pay the British Library research service £50 to search up to four newspapers of the same date and report back to you (cheaper than the train fare??):

Or else perhaps a RootsChatter will be going there and can look things up for you - here's hoping ;)

£50 could well be cheaper than the train fare ;D

I'll have to put it on hold until later in the summer before I could even think about going myself though.

Perhaps some kind soul might offer.  I can hope :)

Thanks for your input
