Just depends what sort of information is required. With a similar answer to previous enquiry, the Huddersfield Examiner will probably have an account of the inquest. I believe they used to appear on a Thursday but if you had the death cerificate to establish the exact date then time would be saved trawling through the newspaper. If this was a suicide, as opposed to a works accident, then it was illegal in those days. Either way it would normally be reported.
Fred Firth was born at Kippax in 1875 being the son of Edward Firth and Ruth nee Bickerdike. Edward had been married previously to Ruth and she had also been married previously to Joseph Butler and also for a third time after Edward’s death to James HIrst. Ruth moved to Milnsbridge Linthwaite and she was living there in 1891 and 1901 and also died there in 1907.
Fred married Isabell daughter of Samuel and Betty Smith at Golcar parish Church 22 May 1915
Fred had half siblings on both sides of his family
if you can get onto Findmypast to search their newspaper archive there is a short report Leeds Mercury 03 July 1928 and Sheffield Daily Telegraph 03 July 1928 with the verdict of suicide while of unsound mind
Many thanks trying find my past no success as yet (user error)
