The informant of the death was George Stone, Police Constable, Niagara.
A Coronial inquiry was held at Niagara on 10 April 1897.
The tragic suicide of Alexander Allen came just 23 days after the death of his brother, James, from enteritis. Alexander had been working late at Mt Catherine and had apparently slept in the cemetery overnight, as a rug and saddle were found on the ground, arranged as a bed. The death of James had preyed heavily on the mind of Alexander who shot himself on his brother's grave. A revolver was found in both his hands and the wound of a bullet showed near his ear.
