Some history of Burton-on-Trent
More information on Burton-on-Trent to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Burton-on-Trent from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Burton-on-Trent. There is information on Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"A very sad and serious accident happened to a little boy some five or six years old, named Willie Ambrose, who lives with his parents in
Dale Street. He was returning home from school on Wednesday afternoon, and upon arriving at the level crossing in Duke Street, close to his home, the little fellow
started to cross just as a train was passing. The engine knocked him down, and ran over his legs, cutting them both off just above the knee. He was immediately conveyed
to the Infirmary, where everything that medical skill could devise was done for the unfortunate little sufferer, but he lies in very precarious condition."
