|George Taylor and his sisters Alice and May|
George was a country lad, and in 1934 he went to Melbourne to work. He was working as a motor mechanic at O'Gilpin's in East Malvern when he was crushed by a truck against a wall. He had cranked the truck while it was still in gear.
I have found his death reported in two papers, and a report of his inquest a week or so later. All are quite short but vary in in accuracy and detail so I think there's a lesson there. Make sure you look at all published reports, not just the first one you find.
