"CAPTAIN DIMBERLINE'S DEATH
The inquest on the body of Wm Dimberline, who died suddenly on Tuesday afternoon was held at the Burlington Hotel on Thursday afternoon, before Major Arundel (coroner), Mr R H Huntington was the foreman of the jury. Harriet Garner, wife of Thomas Garner, living at 8 Sotheron Street, said she went to deceased residence on Tuesday about half-past one, because Mrs Dimberline sent her son to say that Captain Dimberline was in a fit. She, with her husband, went at once and found him sitting in his chair unconscious. He lived about twenty minutes after she got there, not regaining consciousness. Just lately he had complained of being very poorly. Dr Charles Granger Brown said he had made a post-mortem examination of the body. From the examination he attributed the death to syncope, due to the weak condition of the heart. The jury returned a verdict in accordance with the medical evidence."
