Delroy Manning

Plasterer killed in the Ladbroke Grove rail disaster, aged 39.

Andrew Behan has kindly carried out further research: Delroy Oliver Manning was born on 14 January 1960 in Jamaica, West Indies. In March 1998 he married Sandra A. Tomlinson in Lewisham, and they had a child, Antoine Gideon Manning, born in August 1999. They lived in Knowles Hill Crescent, Lewisham. He was a plasterer and he died, aged 39 years, on 5 October 1999 when he was travelling to a new job in Ealing aboard the 8.06am Thames Trains Turbo train from Paddington to Bedwyn, Wiltshire, when it collided with the 6.03am First Great Western High Speed Train from Cheltenham Spa, Gloucestershire, to Paddington at Ladbroke Grove. He was knocked out and thrown from the train on impact. At the subsequent inquest it was recorded that he was identified from his dental records and that he died from head and chest injuries.
