There was a transverse incised wound of the front of the left wrist joint. The radial artery was severed completely as also several of the flexor tendons. There were no other marks of external violence, nor was there any other indication as to the cause of death. From the nature and position of the wound this might in my opinion be self-inflicted and was in itself sufficient to account for death."

In civil life he was a grocer's assistant and was in the Ainsworth Road shop of Messr's Bratt and Hobson. His name is on the Radcliffe Parish church roll of honour and also upon that of St Paul's Wesleyan day school, where he was educated."

His father was Edmund Kaye, a miner and her father was Thomas Holcroft, a labourer.

Children from this marriage were:
