They may not have gone to hospital. In 1915 my father, aged 12, was thrown
from a horse and hit his head on a fence post on his way down. He was
knocked unconscious. He was simply carried home and laid on his bed and the
doctor called. He was expected to die but regained consciousness after 23
70 years later after a mild stroke he had a CAT scan. The doctor said there
the scan showed there had been an old serious brain injury.
I suspect that many serious injuries were tended to at home.

> My great grandmother EMILY HICKSON died of a gunshot to the head three
days after being shot, on 03 October 1901 in Shavington, Cheshire. I assume
she would have gone to a hospital, does anyone have suggestions to the one
she may have gone to. Also my grandmother fell from a swing as a child in
Shavington/Sandbach area and went to hospital also. Severe injuries to her
back. She said she broke her back (certaining had a large hump on her back).
Time frame 1897 - 1907.
> I am trying to find the burial place of EMILY HICKSON, she is not at
Sandbach Cemetery, does anyone have the records for St Chad Wybunbury Old
Cemetery? or maybe records for St Mary's Sandbach as her husband is buried
there. I sent money and a note in 1997 but they were being transcribed by
the local Sandbach Genealogical Society but they didn't get back to me.
