 Help, please, to find the cause of  internment  and death of Arthur Soanes, aged 32, in approx. 1902 and probably in Felixstowe, Suffolk.

Many thanks, Rosie29

Hi

You need to buy a copy of his death cert to establish the cause of his death and without knowing in which establishment he died nobody can help with cause of "internment"

Death registration is on freebmd

Hi Rosie

Just to add that Woodbridge was the Registration District for Felixstowe.

It may be that Arthur was admitted to the Asylum at Melton near Woodbridge.
Deaths at Suffolk County Asylum, Melton would have been registered at Woodbridge.
In 1917 the SCA was renamed St Audry's. I think it was closed in the 1990s.
There is a good website named 'The St Audry's Project' which shows where all the records are now held.

 Thank you all for the information. I am still trying to accept the fact that my grandfather died in an Asylum. No other mental illnesses have ever been found in our part of the family. I wonder if he could have been admitted for other causes.

Hello,

If you do not already have it, his death certificate may help as already advised.

You could also try Suffolk Archives re records.
