April A-Z Challenge – N is for Nancy
Sadly, Nancy had a very short life. She died in October, 1914, from heart failure, after being burnt in an accident at home, 3 days earlier. At the time of her death, the family were living at Lincoln Road, Essendon, Victoria.
According to my father’s memories of what the family told him of his sister, the accident happened when the children were playing with matches. Her death certificate says her burns were small. There was no inquest held.
