Dying En Route to the Workhouse

Post by Karen on Fri 29 Jul 2011 - 9:44


This afternoon Mr. Wynne E. Baxter held an inquiry at the Prince of Wales, Bethnal-green, touching the death of Benjamin Utting, aged 43, a painter, lately living at 21, Tagg-street, Bethnal-green, who died in a cab while being conveyed to the Workhouse. - It appeared from the evidence that the deceased had been unemployed for some time. Latterly he had caught a severe cold, and on Friday last he expressed a wish to be removed to the Workhouse. The following day he got worse, and a cab was procured, into which he was put, but, on reaching the Workhouse gate, it was found that he was dead. - Dr. Saunders deposed that the body was exceedingly emaciated, and in a rather dirty state. Death was due to consumption, accelerated by being jogged and jolted in a cab, and the want of sufficient nourishment. - A verdict in accordance with the medical evidence was returned.
