46 Ouseley Road Balham
« on: Monday 19 March 18 15:27 GMT (UK) »
My mother was born in 1935 at 46 Ouseley Road, when I googled this address it is a house but is attached to St James's Hospital.  So I assumed it was the maternity wing.

7 years later in 1928 my great grandfather died at 46 Ouseley Road, he fell out of a window.  Inquest verdict was 'Open'.  I cannot find any newspaper articles of the inquest or the fall anywhere.  Does anyone know any of the history of this house?  I have obviously looked up the 'Lost Hospitals' web site and have a little information.  Does anyone know where I might find the Inquest documents if there are any?

Thanks

Looking at 1930's PO Directories, 46 Ouseley Road was the address of St James' Hospital

Hi Suzy

Seven years after 1935 is 1942  :)

Or did you mean seven years before 1935?

Cheers

His death certificate should identify the Coroner, giving the area they cover. That will give a possible archive to contact to ask if they hold the file.

Have you just searched online newspaper archives? The event may be too recent for many local papers but a main library in the area may have relevant papers.

Yes it does state the coroner but it is not very clear and I cannot make it out, I think I have attached it here!

Hi Josey

I have just searched on line at moment.  I have emailed Balham library but that was more about the hospital, I did not think of emailing them for the newspaper article.  I will try that too, I am too far away to search myself.

I  read it as Coroner for the County of London so perhaps email the London Metropolitan Archives with details of the Inquest.....date and place, name of deceased.

They found one from 1904 for me; very interesting file to read.
