An Assumption Confirmed...

In my video about my Great Great Grandfather David Croal, I assumed that he had been buried at sea after committing suicide by jumping off a ship, whilst he was travelling from Sydney to New Zealand.

A distant Croal cousin of mine has just found another newspaper article about David’s death, and according to the last sentence, he was buried at sea the day he died, the 13th of May, 1893.
