Deceased was suffering from a severe cough, and while having his supper, a bad fit of coughing came on. His wife ran for the doctor, but wheen she got back the poor man was dead. We understand he had served fourteen years abroad in the Army. Newspaper Report 25 Jan 1901 Biggleswade, Beds  BIGGLESWADE CHRONICLE: SUDDEN DEATH. On Sunday night John Pates, aged 53, Anchor End, Sun Street, died suddenly at quarter to nine p.m. He had been in indifferent health for a long time, suffering from asthma and consumption, and whilst having supper with his wife and children he had a fit of coughing, brought up some blood and fell back in his chair. He was then carried upstairs to bed, and Dr James sent for, but he expired before the doctor arrived, death probably occurring through suffocation consequent upon the breaking of a blood vessel. The deceased was for some years a soldier and had lived in India. Latterly, owing to his health he had been periodically unable to work. He had lately been in the employ of Mr. Gee. He was obliged to leave off work on Tuesday last week, but he felt better on Sunday and thought he should go back to his employment on Monday. The case was reported to the Coroner for the county, but he considered an inquest unnecessary.
