GENERAL NOTE:
Reginald's Christening was on St John's Day. This entry was probably the vicar's way of glossing over the christening being only three days after the couple married. It was also a day for cleansing of one's soul.The Durham Mining Museum has the following account of his death online: "Morcom, Reginald, 24 Sep 1892, 8:30 a.m., 3rd hour of shift, aged 19, Locomotive Stoker, Although provided with a coupling stick, he went under the buffers of some moving waggons to uncouple them, and when coming out again he was caught by the wheel of the following waggon [Inspection made & inquest attended]"There is the following record in the database of the Coalmining History Resource Centre:Name: MORCOM ReginaldAge: 19Date: 24/09/1892Year: 1892Occupation: Loco. stokerColliery: Stank No.9 (metalliferous)Owner: Barrow Haematite Steel Co LtdTown: BarrowCounty: LancashireNotes: Inspection made and inquest attended.
