     Herbert L. Jackson, son of Herbert Steer Jackson and Sarah Elizabeth Garton, was born in Derbyshire in 1918, his Birth was Registered at the Belper Register Office in the Oct-Nov-Dec Quarter of 1918.1

     Herbert L. Jackson, son of Herbert Steer Jackson and Sarah Elizabeth Garton, died on Friday, 11 December 1936, in The Royal Infirmary, Derby, Derbyshire,"following a bicycling accident in which both he and his brother died."2      Two Crich brothers Herbert Jackson aged 18, and Wilfred Leslie Jackson aged 13, lost their lives in an accident while cycling late on Thursday night last week. They were the sons of Mr & Mrs H Jackson of Plaistow Green Farm, Crich, and they had been assisting their parents at their fish and chip shop business at Crich. Shortly before 10 o’clock they left the shop to return home on a bicycle, when it is believed they collided with some horses.

At the inquest held at Derby on Saturday the Coroner said “Most striking of all in this enquiry is the awful tragedy of a family losing two young sons at the same time”.

Herbert Jackson, the father said his two sons left him shortly after 10pm taking with them the bicycle one had barrowed. They were both used to riding. Then 10 minutes later he was told he was wanted on the Ten Acre Lane, and on going there he found Wilfred lying dead at the roadside and Herbert lying unconscious Herbert died 4 hours later in the Derbyshire Royal Infirmary without regaining consciousness.

Rev. Thornton who was called to the where the two boys lay, said ‘he noticed two staying horses a few yards away and drove them into the field. Near the boys was a bicycle undamaged except for the handlebars had been turned out of the correct position, one rubber grip was torn and contained what looked like horse hairs. The road was damp and greasy and showed no marks. The boys had evidently fallen off the bicycle near the foot of a gradient of one in eight. The bicycle has two efficient brakes and a good electric headlamp. So far as he could see one of the two riders had been on the crossbar as there was no step.


A Broken Fence

Further examination showed that the horses had come from nearby field where they had broken through a fence which has been made to fill up a gap way composed of three upright stakes and two crossed strands of barbed wire fastened to the stone gateposts. In his opinion the stakes had not been driven into the ground far enough to make them secure.
P.C. Breed said he examined the horses and could find no scratches on either of them. Five minutes or so before the accident he had seen the boys walking with bicycle. He had no complaint previously of straying animals he would not care to risk a fence such as he had seen there as strong enough to keep horses in.

Leslie Carter, chauffeur of Edward Street, Derby, said that he was driving his employer along to a farm in Crich, he had to pull up while driving along Ten Acre Lane to avoid running into two straying horses. On returning a short time afterwards he found two boys lying unconscious in the road, one of them with his feet tangled in the bicycle. With the assistance of his employer he did what he could for the lads and obtained assistance. The straying horses were still there.


Fractured Skulls

John S Street, Farmer, Moor Edge Farm, Crich, said that his nephew put two horses into the field during Thursday afternoon. After the accident witnesses found that the horses had kicked down the fence which he had considered strong enough which had done duty since August. It was impossible to knock the stakes further into the ground because of the rock underneath but had since put up three strands of barbed wire. The only reason why he thought the horses got out was that they wanted to roam.

Medical evidence showed that the cause of death in each case had been fractured skull.

The Coroner said it was perfectly obvious that the horses wandering on the road and the boys on the bicycle collided with them, but it was not with the province of the jury to attach blame

The jury returned with a verdict of “Accidental Death”.

Mr H.R. Cleaver representing Mr Street, expressed sympathy with the relatives and added that the accident was a grievous blow to all parties who were neighbours and good friends.

Wilfred attended Crich C of E Schools, and was a member of the Parish Church Choir. Herbert was apprenticed to a hairdresser at Ripley.

The Funerals

The funerals took place at Crich Parish Churchyard on Tuesday, the Rev H.E. Jones officiating. The mourners were Father and Mother, Mr F Jackson, Mr L. Jackson, Mr H. Jackson, Mrs D Jackson, Miss C Jackson, Mr A Jackson, Miss A Byard, Mr G Sellors, Mr & Mrs H Jackson,

     Wilfred Leslie Jackson, son of Herbert Steer Jackson and Sarah Elizabeth Garton, was born in Derbyshire in 1923, his Birth was Registered at the Belper Register Office in the Oct-Nov-Dec Quarter of 1923.1

     Wilfred Leslie Jackson, son of Herbert Steer Jackson and Sarah Elizabeth Garton, died on Friday, 11 December 1936, in Ten Acre Lane, Crich, Derbyshire,"following a bicycling accident in which both he and his brother died."2      Two Crich brothers Herbert Jackson aged 18, and Wilfred Leslie Jackson aged 13, lost their lives in an accident while cycling late on Thursday night last week. They were the sons of Mr & Mrs H Jackson of Plaistow Green Farm, Crich, and they had been assisting their parents at their fish and chip shop business at Crich. Shortly before 10 o’clock they left the shop to return home on a bicycle, when it is believed they collided with some horses.

At the inquest held at Derby on Saturday the Coroner said “Most striking of all in this enquiry is the awful tragedy of a family losing two young sons at the same time”.

Herbert Jackson, the father said his two sons left him shortly after 10pm taking with them the bicycle one had barrowed. They were both used to riding. Then 10 minutes later he was told he was wanted on the Ten Acre Lane, and on going there he found Wilfred lying dead at the roadside and Herbert lying unconscious Herbert died 4 hours later in the Derbyshire Royal Infirmary without regaining consciousness.

Rev. Thornton who was called to the where the two boys lay, said ‘he noticed two staying horses a few yards away and drove them into the field. Near the boys was a bicycle undamaged except for the handlebars had been turned out of the correct position, one rubber grip was torn and contained what looked like horse hairs. The road was damp and greasy and showed no marks. The boys had evidently fallen off the bicycle near the foot of a gradient of one in eight. The bicycle has two efficient brakes and a good electric headlamp. So far as he could see one of the two riders had been on the crossbar as there was no step.

A Broken Fence
Further examination showed that the horses had come from nearby field where they had broken through a fence which has been made to fill up a gap way composed of three upright stakes and two crossed strands of barbed wire fastened to the stone gateposts. In his opinion the stakes had not been driven into the ground far enough to make them secure.
P.C. Breed said he examined the horses and could find no scratches on either of them. Five minutes or so before the accident he had seen the boys walking with bicycle. He had no complaint previously of straying animals he would not care to risk a fence such as he had seen there as strong enough to keep horses in.

Leslie Carter, chauffeur of Edward Street, Derby, said that he was driving his employer along to a farm in Crich, he had to pull up while driving along Ten Acre Lane to avoid running into two straying horses. On returning a short time afterwards he found two boys lying unconscious in the road, one of them with his feet tangled in the bicycle. With the assistance of his employer he did what he could for the lads and obtained assistance. The straying horses were still there.


Fractured Skulls

John S Street, Farmer, Moor Edge Farm, Crich, said that his nephew put two horses into the field during Thursday afternoon. After the accident witnesses found that the horses had kicked down the fence which he had considered strong enough which had done duty since August. It was impossible to knock the stakes further into the ground because of the rock underneath but had since put up three strands of barbed wire. The only reason why he thought the horses got out was that they wanted to roam.

Medical evidence showed that the cause of death in each case had been fractured skull.

The Coroner said it was perfectly obvious that the horses wandering on the road and the boys on the bicycle collided with them, but it was not with the province of the jury to attach blame

The jury returned with a verdict of “Accidental Death”.

Mr H.R. Cleaver representing Mr Street, expressed sympathy with the relatives and added that the accident was a grievous blow to all parties who were neighbours and good friends.

Wilfred attended Crich C of E Schools, and was a member of the Parish Church Choir. Herbert was apprenticed to a hairdresser at Ripley.

The funerals took place at Crich Parish Churchyard on Tuesday, the Rev H.E. Jones officiating. The mourners were Father and Mother, Mr F Jackson, Mr L. Jackson, Mr H. Jackson, Mrs D Jackson, Miss C Jackson, Mr A Jackson, Miss A Byard, Mr G Sellors, Mr & Mrs H Jackson,

Death of Ben Bull saddens community

Town of Caledon mourned over the weekend the death of Ben Bull one of the area’s most esteemed and community-minded citizens. Until his death, last Thursday at Dufferin Area Hospital, where he had been admitted the previous Sunday, Mr Bull lived with his wife and family for over 50 years on the “home” farm. Previous to marriage he lived with his parents on this same farm, the site settled upon by them on their arrival from England, to put down roots in Canada. Up until five years ago Mr Bull had tilled the acreage, but since that time, for health reasons, he was forced to give up that physical aspect of farming and allow others the opportunity of carrying on the work so dear to him.
But farming was not his only interest. In 1957, upon the resignation of Mr Chas. Barrett, he filled the office of sec.-treas. of Caledon Agricultural Society, previous to that time having sat on the board as a director. Largely due to his efforts, aided by his wife, Violet, Caledon Fair has continued to be known as one of the most successful of country fairs.
A veteran of the first World War, serving under British command, he was a charter member of Alton Legion 449 Branch, and had recently been given a life membership in the Royal Canadian Legion. He was also chairman of the branch’s Poppy Fund.
An historian of note, he did not confine himself to the past but took a keen interest in present-day affairs. A hearty manner and humorous outlook, as well as willingness to aid in whatever capacity needed, were contributing factors to his making of many friends throughout the district, and now those many friends extend to Mrs Bull and son Fred and family, a very deep and sincere sympathy.
Sunday evening a service was held by Alton Legion Branch at the Baxter & Giles Funeral Home, Orangeville, from where the funeral took place Monday afternoon. Interment was at Alton Cemetery.


Ben’s wife, Violet, died in June 1989 and is buried at Alton Cemetery.5
