First Cousin of William Henry Hoggarth born 1866
On a Thursday morning in late March 1877, Arthur Hoggarth entered the Lowther Street Office to discover his father Henry hanging from the staircase bannisters. He had been dead for around twenty minutes. If this were not a big enough shock for him, he was called to give a witness account at the inquest held at the Town Hall the afternoon of the same day! It seems that Henry had been depressed for some time, suffering headaches and sleeplessness. He was so concerned about his work he had ignored advice to take a holiday.
