1903 Died. 'Mr. Nathaniel Hempsted, formerly of Grantham, and second son of the late Mr. Robert Hempsted, of the Bysart-road Engineering Works, met with his death in London, on Monday last, under circumstances of a very shocking character. He was leaning out of a cab in which he was riding, apparently for the purpose of speaking to the driver, and, from some cause, the cab was overturned, Mr. Hempsted being crushed beneath it. Only the cabman and a policeman, we believe, witnessed the accident, which proved immediately fatal.'[4]
