Height – Pathology Report stated 164cm
Pathology Report - page 2 - No 77ii
- or 180cm which his own family knew him to have been.
He was flat on his back as he died. His legs were out straight. He had no curvature of the spine.
Weight - Pathology Report stated 89kg
Pathology Report - page 2 - No 77ii
- or 75.8kg as his last weight check at Dr Majumdar’s Haematology Clinic (05Apr2004) had shown.
This last recorded weight had been taken on 05Apr2004 - at the Haematology Clinic of Dr Gautam Majumdar, when he was given a 5 day course of chemotherapy, which will have lasted him until 10/11Apr2004.
By 11Apr2004 he was being rushed into Doncaster Royal Infirmary for no apparent reason. From 14Apr2004 he was put on morphine - for no apparent reason - by Dr David J Brown.
From 18Apr2004 to 23Apr2004 he was dehydrated and starved. Then he died.
With that regime, how could he possibly have gained 2 stones 2 pounds in weight?
FACT: Linda Kirby wrote to Ralph Winstanley’s two Consultants,
Consultant Haematologist, Dr Gautam Majumdar and
Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist, Dr Gary James,

Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist, Dr Gary James - letter - 14Mar2006 - page 1 - No 10i
Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist, Dr Gary James - letter - 14Mar2006 - page 2 - 10ii

Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist, Dr Gary James - email - No 75
FACT: Consultant Haematologist, Dr Gautam Majumdar replied stating that all such requests had to go to Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals Trust, as he was not allowed to answer. Requests were sent, but a block was put on any reply - by senior executives at the Trust. – specifically by Chief Executive, Nigel Clifton.

FACT: to this day there has been no investigation of Ralph Winstanley’s death, by South Yorkshire Police Force, in spite of all the evidence which Ralph Winstanley’s family has researched and presented to that force.
Nor has this Force ever officially interviewed either of Ralph Winstanley’s two daughters, both of whom were present and trying to stop this death, during the last 6 days and nights of his life.

NOTE WELL: There is a query against District Nursing Sister Edgecombe’s name. It refers only to her illegible signature, which at first seems to have been Edgeworth and because there is no District Nursing Sister Edgeworth in the Register at the Nursing and Midwifery Council – it now appears to be the signature of a DNS Edgecombe. However, since her name was not also printed, I’m not certain. The name, ‘Edgecombe’, used in this blog refers only to the District Nursing Sister who visited Grange Farm during the time when Ralph Winstanley was dying. We have had absolutely no help from any source at Doncaster East PCT, Doncaster Central PCT or Doncaster and South Humber NHS Trust, in respect of who the nurses might be. (Charlotte Peters Rock)
