Suicide by Hanging. Great Sensation was caused on Sunday afternoon last, in the village of Crawshaw Booth, in Forest of Rossendale, by a report that Mr. Giles Pilkington, of the firm of Messrs. Giles and George Pilkington, cotton manufacturers of that place, had hung himself. He was last seen alive by his servant about two o'clock in the afternoon, at which time he was sitting in his parlour, and appeared to be in his usual state of health; and about four o'clock he was found by his daughter, who is about seven years old, hanging in the coal house adjoining to his residence. He was quite dead when found. We understand that he had been in a desponding state for some time. An inquest was held on view of the body yesterday, but at the time of our going to press we had not heard the result of the investigation.

1855 Giles & George Pilkington, cotton spinners and manufacturers, near Rawtenstall; attending Manchester markets at 15 George st on Tuesdays Slater's Directory of Manchester
1855 six people were killed by a boiler explosion at the Pilkingtons' mill in Crawshaw Booth; inquest, concluding on 1855-05-04, resulted in verdict of accidental death; "Mr. George Pilkington, one of the proprietors of the mill in which the accident happened, was present during a portion of the proceedings."

At this stage of the proceedings a juror suggested the propriety of Mr. George Pilkington's withdrawal from the room.

The Coroner asked if the juror had any particular reason for making the suggestion?

Another Juror said the fact of Mr. Pilkington being present, might be the means of intimidating any of the work-people in his employ who might have to be examined.

The Coroner said, in cases of this sort, it was generally desirable that the master, or someone connected with the management of the mill, should be present, inasmuch as it was frequently necessary to refer to some such person for information.

A Juror remarked, that Mr. Pilkington could retire into a private room, and if necessary he might be sent for.

The Coroner asked Mr. Pilkington if he had any objection to leave the room?

Mr. Pilkington said he had no objection whatever, and accordingly left the room.
