Inquest - Coroners Certificate - Local Newspaper? 6 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 0  
I'm after advice on how to get the details of the parents of a baby girl who died as a result of an accident, and was the subject of an Inquest. I would also like to know how to get a copy of the Coroners Certificate which presumably would show the details of the accident? I have received the death certificate, with no parents details at all - full details from the certificate are: Registration District Stockport, Sub District Hyde, On 20th Aug 1837 at Bredbury, Jane Atherton Female aged 21 months. Cause of death: Accidentally crushed to death. Informant: John Booth, Constable of Werneth who was at the Inquest and delivered Coroners Certificate. Registered on 27 Aug 1837. Hope someone can help!

Its very unlikely that the actual coroners report will have survived, I had a similar incident in my family history where a child had drowned in the Macclesfield canal after fallng off a horse, the story was reported in the local paper with the findings of the coroner. Bredbury would probably come under the Stockport newspaper, I suggest you email Stockport Library and ask if they could look to see if the incident had been reported in the newspaper, I did the same with Macclesfield library and they sent me a transcript of the story and checked the following weeks paper to see if there was a follow up. If its not in the Stockport newspaper try the North Cheshire Herald as this covered the Hyde area, copies of these are at the Tameside Archive Centre in Ashton under Lyne, I know the staff there will be happy to look it up for you. Good Luck.

Vanessa, Many thanks - you may have noticed my post was quite old - and I did indeed go to the Stockport newspaper and got a cutting of the event - In brief, the horse cart overturned accidently, and caused the death of young Jane and seriously injured her mother. Again many thanks. PS. Love the name - CheshireCheese Derek
