Worcestershire / Re: Inquest in Worcs

Netti - to update you - I found the information I wanted in Berrows Journal - there were no other newspapers available at Worcester History Centre for the date I needed. It appears there was a tremendous storm in the area on the night in question and "because of the extreme darkness and inclemency of the weather he either missed his road and walked into the Canal, or his hat blew off and in endeavouring to recover it he fell in". !!

Thanks for everyone`s assistance

Thanks Tina - I have already contacted the coroner, got his permission, then was told the records don`t go back far enough!  I think my only hope is the newspapers

Worcestershire / Inquest in Worcs

My gt gt grandfather John Cook drowned in Stourport and an inquest was held by the Worcs Coroner, William Samuel Price Hughes, on 7th Feb 1866. Would there be a record of the inquest somewhere? Or might it have been reported in a local newspaper?  I`ve no idea where to look!
