Date: 27 Dec 1902
A baby was found dead wrapped up in a parcel beside the Great Central Railway at Rossmore Road Bridge at Marylebone.
The coroner said that the it was a fine child but had been neglected at birth. He said there was a bruise over the right eye that had been inflicted during life and that her nostrils were flattened as though something had been placed over her face.
The coroner returned a verdict of death due to suffocation which was wilfully caused.
The coroner added that in his experience there was a great deal of baby farming and the illegal disposal of infants going on at that present time.
