“His Excellency would be grateful for assistance… getting dead bodies buried”

Chief Secretary’s Office

Dublin Castle

April 28th 1916

Dear Lord Mayor

With Reference to our conversation this morning, I am to tell you that His Excellency would be grateful to you for any assistance you can give in getting dead bodies now lying in hospitals and streets, buried as soon as the military conditions allow of this in any district.

Yours sincerely,

Matthew Nathan
