Reginald Merrells died Dec 1919 Southwark, London
« on: Friday 07 December 18 10:07 GMT (UK) »
The circumstances of Reginalds death are a bit of a mystery and something the family did not discuss.  The story goes that Reginald died due to scalding possibly in a bath but he was less than twelve months old and my Grand Mother was the oldest child, possibly the person in charge of the household at the time.  Could somebody direct me to Newspaper archives which may contain the details of his death, Would the South London Press be the relevant newspaper at the time and if so are archives available.

Any help on the details of his death would be appreciated.

His death is shown a 0 years so he was just under 1

Not everything reached the paper in those days, some inquest papers have also been lost but hang in there someone might know something

Can't find a birth registration as yet either

A death cert might be a good idea

I agree his death certificate would be the best option and would give cause of death.  Here are the registration details.

Dec 1919
Camberwell

Burial date 15 December 1919 per deceased online.

Further details available for a small fee - never used this myself but it offers these options

Grave details and 15 other burials
Burial register scan
Map of grave location

Would suggest you have a little look at that site and decide what you want to do  :)

I don't have a sub any more but generally if there are around 15 burials it would not be a family grave.

I dispensed with this birth Reg, surely he wouldn't be registered after his death, would he?

No his grave would not be a family or private grave

His birth could have been registered after his death was registered.  It might even still have been within the prescibed time - much longer for births than for deaths.
