This is an important gateway ancestor for a lot of Australian Gronow's in Victoria. Thanks go to Judith Evans for her help on obtaining this information.

Reported on this Day in 1893.

District News, Cardiff.

DEATH FROM SCALDING, Mr E. B. Reece (coroner) held an inquest at the Town Hall, Cardiff on Friday evening, on the body of Annie Mary Gronow aged 3 years of 56 Letty Street, Cathays. The evidence showed that about six weeks ago the deceased was scalded by the upsetting of a bucket of boiling water, and the child died on Wednesday from injuries received. After the evidence of Dr. Shepard the jury returned a verdict of 'Accidental Death'.

All index entries for Wales from the 1911 Census have now been added to the English counties previously extracted. Approx 690 entries, including variants Gronnow & Goronwy. The vast majority of families have been grouped into their households. With the all important information from 1901-1912 I can at last sort out the remaining births for this period into their respective families. I expect this to take a month or so.

Congratulations to Brightsolid for their performance so far.
