Dagger, Albert

Dagger, Albert          1887 July 23rd         Bradford-on-Avon

A quarryman named Albert Ernest Dagger, working for Messrs Pictor and Sons, at Winsley quarry, met with a fatal accident through the breaking of a girder of the crane, which was being used to raise a block of stone, the structure falling upon him breaking his leg and thigh, and severely bruising his head.

A doctor was sent for and the deceased removed to his home at Bradford, but died before reaching there. An inquest was held at the Castle Hotel and a verdict of “Accidental death” returned. The District Inspector of Mines (Mr J S Martin, of Clifton) attended, and said he did not attach blame to anyone.
