Death After Operation.
Conisborough Man Who Was Injured in Pit over Year Ago.

A fall at the Cadeby Main Colliery, on July 5th, 1927, was stated at a Sheffield inquest yesterday to have been responsible for the death of Harry Shaw (63), a surface worker, of 10, Kent Yard, Conisborough.

The fall fractured Shaw’s thigh, and after being admitted to the Fullerton Hospital, Denaby, he died at the Sheffield Royal Infirmary.

Dr. Godfrey Carter said that Shaw’s death was due to an operation necessitated by the injury, and shock.

The verdict was that “Shaw died from a surgical operation for an injury to his thigh, accidentally sustained at the Denaby Colliery.”
