The Coroners have been engaged with the following cases during the week:-


On Monday, at the Newington Coroner's Court, Mr. G. P. Wyatt, coroner, held an inquest on the body of Harry Hale, aged 52 years, an engineer's labourer, lately living at 89 Smyrks Road, Walworth. - Edward Hale, a son, said that deceased enjoyed good health, with the exception of a bad cough. He had not been medically treated for the last three months. He appeared as usual when he retired to bed on Sunday night. The following morning, when witness, who slept with deceased, woke, he discovered him dead by his side. - Dr. Wm. Ashby, of 278 Old Kent Road, stated that he was called in and pronounced life extinct. He saw nothing to account for death, and had subsequently made a post-mortem examination of the body, and found the lungs acutely congested. The immediate cause of death was syncope. Witness was informed that deceased had just been served with a County Court summons which worried him a great deal. This, in witness's opinion, might have accelerated his death.

found it after googling HALE which is my maiden name and one of my areas of

Albert, as you have said he was known, was in fact cousin to my Grandfather,
Edward Cornelius Hale! Albert also had two older brothers, William born
c1881 in Bermondsey and James born c1884 in Camberwell.

Albert's father James and my Gt Grandfather, David Harry, were brothers and
two of a total of six children born to David Hale from South Mimms and Susan
Baxter from Suffolk. (They were married in Rotherhithe in 1854).

However (!) I realise this is getting completely away from your Tree ... and
also the reason I am writing to you!

As you have shown Albert's parents on your website, I wondered if you would
like a copy of their marriage cert? James Hale and Rebecca Louisa Walkinshaw
married on the 2nd August 1880 in St James' Church, Bermondsey.
