Charles Henry Jones died Almwch Hospital 3 Jul 1883
« on: Thursday 25 June 20 20:04 BST (UK) »
I am attempting to learn the circumstances of my Great Grandfather's death at Almwch hospital on 3 July 1883. I have the death certificate which describes a concussion of brain & apoplexy.
He was a Liverpool pilot and was probably preparing to bring a ship into the port of Liverpool. I am wondering if there was any newspaper or coroners report that recorded how he received the injury.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Welcome to Rootschat!

There's this article in Welsh.

I think he may have been struck on the head by a carriage of a tram in Liverpool, but there are people on the boards who will translate for you.

Hello stsyjumi,

There are many welsh speakers here, if it is connected to this topic just reply with the details. If it is a seperate topic you could post it under "wales" or the deciphering/translation section.

Regards

Sarah

Translation

SUDDEN DEATH - Friday night last, Dr Roberts, Amlwch, was called on to go in a boat from Bull Bay to "Pilot Boat No 1", belonging to Liverpool,  to one of the crew named Charles Jones, who was quite poorly. He had hit his head against a vehicle while descending from one of the Liverpool tramcars about a fortnight ago., but he didn't take a lot of notice of it for some days. Although feeling distressed/in pain he went with the ship to sea, the result of which was his becoming a lot worse. He refused to return home with some steamer that would pass them, but when Dr Roberts saw him, he saw the wretch was in a dangerous situation and ordered him to be taken ashore at once and taken in a vehicle to the Cottage Hospital, Amlwch where he died four hours after getting there, in spite of every effort of the doctors. Sympathy/condolences for his widow and six children. His mortal remains were taken by train to Liverpool Friday night "Therefore be ye also ready"** it is with people of the sea as on land.

Trust it make sense.

Many thanks to all for the help in finding this article and the translation.
Charles Henry Jones was my Great Grandfather, his wife Annie died 6 months after his unfortunate accident and my grandfather, Charles son, was put into the Liverpool Seamanís Orphanage which I visited earlier this year.
