He was born on 5th March 1891 at 27 Southam Street in Kensington. His only dent on history is that he was shown as being one month old on the 1891 census.
Sadly, Charles died of "Tubercular Meningitis" on 25th May 1893.
- Tuberculosis (TB) is spread through the air when people who have TB in their lungs cough, spit, speak, or sneeze.
- The bacteria multiply within the lungs, pass into the bloodstream and are able to travel to other areas of the body
- If the bacteria travel to the meninges (protective layers that protect the brain) and brain tissue, small abscesses are formed
- These abscesses can burst and cause TB meningitis. This can happen immediately, or several months or years after the initial infection
- The infectious process causes a rise in pressure within the skull, resulting in nerve and brain tissue damage, which is often severe
His death certificate describes a rather painful and upsetting death in that he had been diagnosed with TB for 21 days and suffered from convulsions for 12 hours.
He is another example of someone who died far too young due to the atrocious conditions in which his parents had to bring him up.
