An inquest was held by Bradford Borough Coroner, Mr J G Hutchinson, at the Town Hall on Saturday, respecting the death of Mr George Lavender Layton (54), stuff salesman of 129 Wilmer Road, Heaton, and formerly of Shipley. It appeared from the evidence that the deceased was a passenger by the tramcar which left Rawson Square at five minutes to ten o’clock on Friday night last. When the bottom of Bowland Street was reached the deceased, who had been seen to beat his breast as if for the purpose of keeping warm, was suddenly taken ill and fell to one side. The car was stopped opposite the residence of Dr Denby who was called but pronounced life to be extinct. The jury returned a verdict of death by natural causes.
