Eliza Garrard died at Hackney Infirmary on 23 December 1904.

She had been admitted a week earlier on the advice of a doctor who had attended her for paralysis.

When she arrived at the infirmary a doctor found that she had some bruises about her ankles and heels but there were no signs of any external injuries. However, at her post-mortem it was found that her occiput was bruised and below that there was haemorrhage on the brain. It was stated to have not been a natural apoplexy and that it must have been caused by a blow of some sort to the head and an open verdict was returned.
