Can someone advise me where I can find death/inquest of British subject lost/killed at sea. I have a relative who was a sea pilot based in Cardiff and he lost his life in the Bristol Channel in 1903. I'm not sure of the details and I would like to know where I can access these details.
Have you tried contacting the Admiralty? They should have records of all lost at sea. Good luck. By the way, my ancestors were from County Kent, UK. Two died at sea, but were already US citizens and one was born at sea on her way to the US.
What were you looking for in Aus? Did you mean to put 1988 or a year in the 1890's? It's a bit hard to access information in the 1980's as it is so recent. Re my query, the name was Thomas Catterson and he was a shipping pilot and drowned in the Bristol Channel in 1903. His Yacht was named "Cambria". His son also died in the tragedy. He was part of the Crew. Any help woud be most appreciated.
