Richard Profet (spelt Profit) 1868

Hello listers

Can someone please help me I'm looking for the name's of local newspapers that were in circulation in and around Holyhead Bay, Anglesey, North West Wales during 1868.

My GR GR Grandfather "accidently drowned" in Holyhead Bay on 19 Feb 1868. His Death Certificate states that an Inquest was held on 21 Feb 1868 with the death being registered on 27 May 1868.

I am wondering whether or not there would have been a newspaper report of the Inquest's findings or if the Inquest papers themselves may have survived and if they did who would I contact to obtain a copy.

Richard's brother James also died on the same day in the same place. I have ordered his Death Certificate to see if he also died by drowning.

Does anyone know of a shipwreck or similar around that time as both brothers were Mariners.

Any help would be appreciated on the above.

Many thanks
