Liz Crothers has written:

"He only ever called my grandmother Charlie, I remember my grandmother telling me.

According to media sources, it is said he was hit by a train, however, according to my late mother this was not correct.

Apparently he had been to the races that day and won 80 quid. He had been shouting all and sundry drinks at the local pub, he was found the next day - near the lines??, a bloodstained rock on the ground, and it was concluded that he had fallen and hit his head - whether he was bumped by the train who knows, but no trace of the 80 quid was found, and it is maintained that he was murdered."
