Known as The Doctor.
The deceased committed suicide by blowing his head off by means of dynamite, which he had evidently put in his mouth and attached a cap and fuse thereto. He was commonly known as "The Doctor" and it is asserted that he was justly entitled to the distinction, being a duly qualified medical doctor.
An inquiry was held and a verdict of suicide whilst temporarily insane was returned.
The deceased was the eldest of two boys and four girls born between 1868 and 1879. His father, Charles Addingley, was born in 1830 in Pontefract and died in 1891 in Pontefract, leaving an estate valued at £29,783 7s 6d. HIs wife was born in 1835 in Skipton, Yorkshire, and died in 1934 in Pontefract. He was still residing in Pontefract, Yorkshire, in 1881.
