Mum found hanged at Earl of Pembroke’s estate days after daughter killed herself

A mum has been found dead just six days after she identified the body of her daughter, who had also killed herself.

Beverley Dickenson died on the 14,500 acre Wilton estate in Wiltshire, home of the Earl of Pembroke, where she worked as a gardener.

The 49-year-old was found in the early hours of June 17 by her husband David.

Just days before her tragic death, Beverley had helped to identify the body of her 29-year-old daughter Charlotte Dunne.

Charlotte was found dead by her brother Joe at her home, a few miles away in Wilton, on June 10.

Wiltshire police ruled out crime in both of the cases.

Inquests into the deaths in Salisbury, Wiltshire, ruled both the mother and daughter had died after being found hanged.

Joe, 25, told The Times: "Believe me, you can never tell when someone is going to do it.

"My sister was fine, so was my mum.

"There was nothing to be aware about."

More than £5,000 has been raised to cover Charlotte’s funeral costs after a fundraising page was set up.

Samantha Stephens, who started the Facebook page, wrote: "Charlotte was caring, kind, funny and beautiful and I know that we will all miss her deeply.

"It is so important now to cherish the wonderful memories we shared with her, and to remember that this isn’t goodbye forever."

Through the Facebook page, the family thanked everyone for the love they have received during this difficult time.

The mayor of Wiltshire described the sadness felt by the town, adding that Beverley had been devastated by her daughter’s death.

Inquests into the deaths were opened and adjourned for Charlotte on June 15 followed by Beverley on Friday.
