    You might be interested in this which appeared in the Staffordshire Sentinel for the 3rd September 1881 - you mentioned this Robert in your original post :)

    Mr Robert Bagnall of the Boothen Farm, died very suddenly about mid-day on Sunday, a few yards from his own house. He was taken with what was thought to be a fit, and a few minutes afterwards expired in the arms of P. C. Cross, who had been in conversation with him. The deceased was a member of the Town Council and until recently had a seat as a Guardian of the Poor at the Stoke Board, and was brother to the present Town Clerk of Stoke. The deceased had been treated for epileptic fits. The mortal remains of the deceased gentleman were interred in the family vault in Stoke Parish Churchyard on Wednesday. The ceremony was conducted as unostentatiously as circumstances would allow, and but few were aware of the hour fixed for the interment. A number of tradesmen put up their shutters and most of the blinds in the houses of Boothen were drawn. The deceased was very much respected, particularly by his neighbours.

    WOW!!!, Ann,
    this is awesome, It give a lot of insight into the family's circumstances and life style,in 1881. We suspected that the family were of some means,
    Richard, Robert's elder brother by about 9 yrs, My G/Grandfather paid for their own passage to Australia, in 1861. he died in 1904.( he was insolvent twice)

    Robert's death was 28th August 1881. 48 yrs.
    He is buried with his mother Anne 30 September 1867, 74 yrs
    and his sister Sarah 3 may 1857, 39 yrs
    Thanks Merv.
