CHARLES CARTY is supposed to have died 31st October 1860 but no entry has been located in the Registrar-General's Indexes.. This does not mean it did not happen, merely that it was not recorded. No other details are known about him. The Treasury Pension Register which usually yield details such as the place of residence where pension was paid, a physical description and date of death cannot be consulted in this case because that particular register has been lost over the years.
