    Could you please advixe me how to go about tracing details of the death of my great grandfather, James Williams, of North Castle Street, Stafford, who was an engine driver. We believe that he died after falling from his locomotive in the Wolverhampton area in 1904/5. He was a Stafford resident. Can you advise if you have any archives available which may cover this event, and maybe give names of mourners at the the funeral. If not, can you advise us where to look? Thank you, Janet Blowwer, 123 Crab Lane Stafford. ST16 1SN Tel 01785 240417
