One thought on “Spa Fatality – Charles Newall – 27 Apr 1876

  1. I have found Charles’ burial in the parish register of St. Nicholas’, Guisborough – and that is it. I cannot isolate him based on his age at death (30 years old), which gives a birth year of about 1846. There are several Charles Newalls (various spellings) of the right age in the 1871 census but none born locally. It would seem he was a single young man who had moved into the area after 1871, presumably to take employment in the ironstone mines.

    The only significant addition I can make to his life story is that he died in the Miners Accident Hospital at Guisborough (source: burial register).
