Road accident 1958
« on: Thursday 07 July 16 12:23 BST (UK) »
Hi all
I have a death certificate of which the cause of death was 'Injuries sustained in a road accident' this happened in Beeston Notts in 1958, does anyone know where I can find a bit more information about this please? Not sure how to use the newspaper records online.
Thanks in advance.

The British Newspaper Archive is still very much a work in progress but unfortunately not much is online for Nottinghamshire (or elsewhere)  since the 1940's.

Have you contacted the archives and asked for a newspaper search there?
