William James Sibbald - Western Road School Crookes Sheffield August 1920

This is a cutting from The Sheffield Daily Independent dated 4th March 1921


It refers to "tragic circumstances" in September last (1920)

I have located the burial record on the excellent Sheffield Indexers site

SIBBALD, Mary Clive (Daug of Olive, age 14). Died at Royal Infirmary; Buried on March 18, 1926 in Consecrated ground; Grave Number 997, Section AA of Crookes Cemetery, Sheffield.
    
SIBBALD, Thomas (Traveller, age 79).Died at Ecclesall Institution; Buried on November 30, 1918 in Consecrated ground; Grave Number 997, Section AA of Crookes Cemetery, Sheffield.
    
SIBBALD, William James (School Master, age 46). Died at 98 Mona Road; Buried on August 14, 1920 in Consecrated ground; Grave Number 997, Section AA of Crookes Cemetery, Sheffield.

It notes that he died at 98 Mona Road and was buried on 14th August 1920 in Crookes Cemetery.(not September)

I cannot find out what these "tragic circumstances" were. And so if anyone can help me out on this please by all means contact me.I would also like to know what became of the large photograph of William mentioned in the cutting
