The sad death of my 2x Great-uncle, William Carey Freeman following an accident in a coal pit.
I’d noticed he had died at a young age from the BMD records and had decided to search for an inquest report in the local papers rather than ordering the death certificate.
It sounds like an awful, but avoidable accident, the poor man died six months afterwards at the age of 27.
I believe William had married in 1870, but there were no children mentioned in the 1871 census.
I have also noted two other, much younger, William Carey Freemans in subsequent census returns, but haven’t yet worked out if they are related and if so, how.
