Strange death of Liverpool constables
At the Coroner’s Court before Me Clarke ASPINALL an inquest has been held touching the death of James GRAHAM, lately Constable 165 in the city force.
Police Constable Thomas GRIFFITHS stated that the deceased had been in the force for about 15 months and lived at the station house. Witness and the deceased did duty on adjoining beats in Scotland Road and about 10pm on the 10th inst witness saw a crowd in Scotland Road, near St Martin’s Market. Upon going there he found that the deceased had a soldier named MURPHY in custody, and the latter was striking at him on the head with the buckle of a belt. Witness stayed the blow and seized the soldier to whose assistance a soldier named HANNAH came. Deceased was butted in the stomach and chest and both constables were knocked down and kicked.
Witness blew his whistle, and other constables arriving, the soldiers were both taken into custody. They were booked for being drunk and riotous and for assaulting the police, and were fined for those offences the following day.
After that day the deceased complained of feeling sore all over, but did not mention any special injury
Police constable J. B. BRYANS  and Edward PARRY manager of the cocoa-room in Scotland Road and Thomas NOLAN, a hostler, corroborated this evidence, and stated that the soldier MURPHY was very violent, kicking and otherwise assaulting the deceased. PARRY said he heard HANNAH say to MURPHY, “Go quietly,” and he replied, “I’m no militiaman, I’m a soldier,” and he thereupon began to kick the constable. Deceased was found dead in a water closet at the station house.
Dr FISHER senior house officer at the Northern Hospital, said the deceased body was taken to the hospital and upon examining it he found an abrasion on the right side of the chest, and a bruise on the upper part of the left side, but this was not of any great extent. All the organs were very much congested, and there was a great amount of irritation to the intestines. Witness could not in any way connect the death with the apparent injuries. The Jury returned an open verdict.
An inquest was also held touching the death of Charles ROSE, 35 years of age, late Police Constable 706 in the Liverpool city police force. ROSE went off duty one night at 9.30pm being apparently in his usual good health. He had supper, and went to bed about 10.30 pm, after which he read in bed for an hour and then went to sleep. His wife was awakened at 1.30 am by hearing deceased make a peculiar noise and she tried to rouse him, but failed in this and deceased fell out of bed. A doctor was called but ROSE was found to be dead, a post-mortem showed that cause of death to be heart disease. A verdict of “Death from natural causes” was returned.
