ALICE JANE SHRUBSOLE + GEORGE ALFRED FINN


After George had died Alice & four of the girls went to live in Canada.
I have in my possesion postcards sent by them in 1924 saying they have arrived safely.

Sadly it appears that George comitted suicide in 1922

In the Evening Telegraph of Thursday 11th May, 1922
the following was reported:

GEORGE FINN, AN OLD EMPLOYEE AT FOLKESTONE GASWORKS, WAS FOUND DEAD AT THE WORKS THIS MORNING IN A RESERVOIR CONTAINING HOT TAR.  DECEASED HAD BEEN IN POOR HEALTH RECENTLY.



And in the Dover Express & East Kent News on Friday, 19th May 1922
the inquest of his death was reported:

 FOLKESTONE

DEAD IN HOT TAR TANK – The Folkestone Borough Coroner (Mr. G. W. Haines) held an inquest on Friday last on the body of George Alfred Finn, aged 50 years, a boiler stoker in the employ of the Folkestone Gas and Coke Company, who was found dead the works, in a reservoir containing hot tar.

Dr. Stranaghan said that he had attended the deceased for about six years.  In July last he complained of a dizzy feeling in the head and of being nervous, saying the he did not like being left alone.  Witness found no disease to account for it.  He treated the deceased until August, and he went to work on the 6th of that month.  He carried on until the 17th, when he complained of illness again, and he did not go to work again until March.  He did not seem to be much interested in anything, and he did not like being left alone.  He was always following his wife about.  In witness's opinion, the deceased was suffering from melancholia, which sometimes developed suicidal tendencies.  The deceased had said that if he did not get better he would rather “be out of it”.  Witness spoke to Mr. Griffin about the deceased, and told him that if he (the deceased) could get some light work it would be beneficial.  Mr. Griffin promised to do what he could.

The Coroner said that from his own observation of the place in question, he considered that it was impossible for anybody to have accidentally fallen in.  He did not, of course, suggest for a moment that anybody could have put the deceased in there.  Taking into consideration his health, particularly the condition described by the doctor, he found that the deceased killed himself by getting into the tar tank, and that when he did so he was temporarily insane.  He thought that every precaution had been taken to protect the workmen there.
