Coroners inquest
« on: Monday 04 May 20 19:38 BST (UK) »
Hello. I've just received a copy of my ancestors death certificate and I'm wondering whether anyone here could point me in the right direction to get more information. His name was Isaac Newberry and he died 8 Nov 1873 in Crumlin, Mynyddislwyn. Cause of death was accidentally falling over a bridge into the River Ebbw. He was a watchman at an iron bridge works. The certificate says an inquest was held 10 Nov. Perhaps newspapers? Or could I see the inquest report? Not sure where to start looking. Thanks

Newspapers are a good place to start;  also email the county archives/record office to ask if the report has survived. Include basic details; date of inquest and the name of the Coroner.

Good luck!

Thankyou. I'm not really sure which county it would come under. Are you aware of any good newspaper reference sites?
