Text:
Last evening an enquiry was held at the London Hospital by Mr. John Humphreys, Middlesex coroner, respecting the death of William Poley, aged seven years, who lost his life under the following shocking circumstances: Thomas Poley, 11, White Row [11 White Row], said that on Tuesday morning he heard a noise in the room where deceased and his brother Alfred were. He went to see what was the matter, and he found their bed in flames and deceased's clothes on fire. He was burning fearfully, and he screamed out, 'Oh, it was Alfred made me do it, he told me to light the matches.' It appeared that deceased had got some lucifers and set fire to the bed and himself. Witness had much difficulty in extinguishing the flames, and was himself severely burnt. Mr. Appleyard, house surgeon, said the the skin and flesh were burnt off deceased's stomach and limbs. He was dreadfully charred, and recovery was of course hopeless. A verdict of 'Accidental Death' was returned.
