Date and cause of death[edit]

While not decrying that the current cite 19:34, 7 January 2014 (UTC) states Hill as committing suicide on 15 March 1968, both the Sheffield Star on 5 April 1968 and The Wednesday Boys: A Definitive Who's Who of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club 1880–2005 give the date of death as 5 April 1968 and the cause of death as a heart attack. As this is two reliable sources supporting this I'm going to apply BRD and change it. Nthep (talk) 19:34, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

@Nthep: - one thing to consider, and this is mere speculation bear in mind - there is the very small chance that Hill did indeed commit suicide, and that the local paper reported it as a "heart attach" to avoid any stigma for his family. GiantSnowman 19:46, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
Accepted, but we don't have a source for that unless there is something else on the clubbrugge website. Nthep (talk) 20:10, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
