What a coincidence.

I have just recieved the death cert of my great, great, great, great grandmother Sarah Hawkes. She died 8th September 1893 aged 80 in Foulness Island, Essex.

My great, great, great grandfather Thomas Cornwell died 8th September 1893 in nearby Great Wakering. I recieved his death cert a few months ago. Both died on the same day of the same year within a few miles of each other.

How is that for coincidence?
