Isn't this beautiful?  Is that a face on the left? Can anyone tell me if there is a church identifier in this text?

My understanding is that most deaths in custody go to inquest, the death certificate will show the cause of death. The inquest may be reported in the paper.
I know he killed himself, how isn't important to me.  What I really wanted to know was why he was in prison which I now know unfortunately.

You need Liverpool Echo 14 December 1982, page 7, final column

and Liverpool Echo 14 June 1962 page 3 final column re previous serious offences

Sorry I asked now!  :o  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

As far as I know - the 100yr rule would apply to sight/release of those records

You may be able to locate an inquest or coroners record at Liverpool RO which may give some info

Why would the 100 year rule apply? Aren't convictions a public record, they are published in the media every day?

I have recently found the cremation record for my 1st cousin, once removed,  Joseph Keating, which shows he died in Walton Prison, Liverpool, 30th May 1983, aged 43.  I've found a public record which would suggest he took his own life.

How can I find out what he was in prison for?  I know newspaper archives are the obvious place to start but I don't have a subscription to any of these sites. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Yvonne -- that is SO funny. I had just written a reply - but yours arrived first.

I had looked on the Index of Old Occupations site

and found the following;

Caster / Castorer    Made small bottles for sprinkling salt, pepper, sugar etc. (never heard of that one, so learnt something.)

Hence I had wondered if it might be Castorer with the word split up by the enumerator. Clearly not.
(You never know when you may get that one in a quiz!)

Lol!  Every day's a school day!  Thank you for your efforts! x
