      Obituary, Huddersfield Chronicle, Saturday 24 September 1892:

      "Fatal Accident to a Huddersfield teamer at Bolton

      Wednesday afternoon an inquest was held at the Victoria Hotel, Chorley New Road, Heaton near Bolton on the body of Walter VICKERMAN aged 34 years, a teamer in the employ of Messrs F & A KERSHAW, furniture removers and coal merchants, Huddersfield and who resided at Primrose Hill.

      At 6 oclock on Monday morning the deceased left Huddersfield with a van load of furniture to take to Blackpool. He arrived at Irlam o' th' Heights beyond Manchester about 8.30pm the same night. At 7 o'clock on Tuesday morning he resumed his journey. About 4 in the afternoon he was riding on the shafts of the van at Chorley New Road, Heaton beyond Bolton and the driver of a tram car going toward Boldon saw the van at a passing place on the tram lines and whistled to him twice to get him to draw to the side of the road. The deceased was evidently asleep and did not hear the whistles. The deceased seemed to awake in a startled manner and he pulled the reins and his horses suddenly turned to the left. Either through the suddeness of the turn and being half asleep or in jumping off, the deceased fell on the road and the wheels passed over his chest. He died in 3 or 4 minutes afterwards before a doctor could get there. A policeman had seen and spoken to him half an hour before the accident and he was then quite sober. The jury returned a verdict of 'accidental death'. The Messrs KERSHAW went over to Heaton, gave orders for a coffin to be made for the deceased and made arrangements for the body to be brought to Huddersfield for interment"
