Falkirk – Serious Accident - On Friday, a woman called Mary Bain was engaged at No. 9 Pit, Redding colliery, along with another woman, in "trimming" waggons, and while doing so several empty hutches which were standing about six yards off broke loose from their moorings, came against the waggon which was being trimmed, and propelled it along the line. Bain, in consequence lost her balance, and fell in betwixt the waggons, and a plank used in crossing the scree caught her by the throat, injuring her severely. She afterwards got entangled with the brake, and sustained a severe blow on the forehead. No hopes are entertained of her recovery. [Scotsman 3 March 1863]
NB Mary Bain, aged 36 died 2nd March 1863. The death was not registered until 2 April 1864.
She wondered why there was such a long gap between the death and registration.
Curious as always! I found the registration, and the dates are in fact as reported.
There was a Corrected Entry that starts with "the following report result of a precognition touching the death of Mary Bain"
the RCE is dated 2nd April 1964 and a further date of 25th February 1865 is written across the top would that have been when the RCE was added to the page?
there follows details of the accident and her death , but no obvious reason for the delay in the registration of her death.
If her death wasn't registered for so long, when would she have been buried?
Like her mother she's fallen down the rabbit hole of local history!!!
