"At Bricett, Suffolk, yesterday, during a thunderstorm, a labourer was struck by lightning and killed." Dundee Courier, 27 July 1897, p5 c6[4]

The transcribed Bricett burial register records the poor soul's name as 'Alferd Taylor' (buried 30 July 1897 - 23 years old) with the comment, 'killed by lightning'. However the GRO death register has his name as 'Arthur Taylor'.[5][6]
