In 1929 there was an inquest into the death of Dudley Harrison b. 1910.  I'd love to see the inquest report published in the local Warwickshire newspapers and wondered if anyone has a subscription to British Newspaper Archives.

Jules,
You can see it at FindMyPast, in their newspaper collection:
06 December 1929 - Leamington Spa Courier - Leamington, Warwicks - "Killed on GWR Line"

Page 6 has a report of the inquest and a report on the funeral.

Thanks Peter

I was having trouble with login but now resolved and reading articles.

The reasons for the 'accident' have never clear and several generations later the details of what actually happened that day are very vague. So these reports will be valuable to the family.
