View Full Version : Help

I was wondering if anyone has had a relation injured or killed in the shipyards in the north east of England in the 20th century and if they have managed to get any record of the accident/death.

Or maybe point me in the general direction as to where to get this information.

Appreciate any help.

Thanks Dave

If you know a date, then local newspapers would be your best bet for a start.

If a death occurred then there would have been an inquest - again, local newspaper reports.

I am not sure who would hold Accident Investigation reports, nor whether they would be available to the public. Hopefully someone else will know.
