Some history on Upton-on-Severn in the county of Worcestershire
"On Saturday morning, an accident took place which resulted in the death of Joseph Carr, waggoner, in the employ of Mr. E. Cotterill,
of this town. Carr was conveying a load of iron rails from Upton to Malvern Wells, for the Tewkesbury and Malvern Railway, when, upon going down an incline at Hanley
Castle, he slipped and fell under the wheel, which passed over his head, killing him instantaneously. The Rev. A. B. Lechmere having been informed of the circumstances
under which the accident took place, decided that an inquest was not necessary."
