Coroners Registers

I had a look at this register while at Wellington National archives last week. As you can see, it includes reports on fires around the country. I thought that was interesting. The example shown here was for 1902.
For a closer look, click on the image. Using the reference number on the right, the file can be ordered up.

  3. No, I don't think so, probably for insurance claims.
