The following snippets are all from the St Ives Weekly Summary. Don't know if they are any use to anyone...

23 January 1892 edition: Fatal Accident to a St Ives Sailor in Ireland. (NB: Didn't transcribe the whole article, but the basics are as follows.) William Uren, of Gabriel Street, was a sailor on board the SS Scotharley, of Cork. He lost his balance on a plank and fell into the hold. He suffered concussion, injuries to the head, and a fractured collar bone. He never regained consciousness except to say he was from St Ives. He leaves a widow and 2 children, and was interred in the local Cemetary at Cork.

Good work again m'dear. Not of immediate use to me - but it will be in the future given I have a number of Uren connections. I am sure, though, that others will pounce upon this information and help get this thread going.
