Can anyone please help me trace reports of an inquest held on 1st and 16th January 1940 regarding the death of husband & wife of "poisoning by carbon monoxide gas inhaled from a paraffin stove". The family name was SHEPHARD and I gather the two dead bodies were found on 28th December. Would love to get confirmation of events as family stories circulating vary quite considerably!

What newspaper archive may have a report?

Many thanks
