William and Eliza had 7 children (or so I was led to believe)
recently I have found what I think is another child, that only lived
6 months, but on his death certificate it states that there was an
inquest held on 28th November 1896. ( Both birth and death
certificates only state the fathers name for some reason! )
The death certificate will only state the father's name. The mother
will only be mentioned if she was the informant.
It's unusual for the mother's name not to be mentioned.
For what is and is not on English and Welsh certificates, see:
I was wondering if there is any records available, would anyone have
any clues where I might look please ?
There are unlikely to be any. Coroner's inquests were his property to
destroy after 15 years unless the case is of particular note in which
case the records are closed for 75 years.
Any sudden death, even of natural causes, is referred to the coroner.
The death certificate will have given the cause of death.
Your best bet would be the local papers of the time which would have
very possibly given a near verbatim report of the inquest. That said,
it's still worth checking with the record office on the off chance
they do have something. You can check by using their online catalogue.
