Inquest to be held over death of teenage boy who died after ‘fall’ from Ramsgate esplanade

Emergency services in Marina Road

An inquest into the death of a teenage boy who died after falling from a height at Ramsgate seafront will be held in September.

Samuel Alban-Stanley, 13, was taken to King’s College Hospital in London with life-threatening injuries after emergency services were called to a welfare concern report at Marina Road on April 22.

Emergency services attended and found the boy suffering injuries consistent with a fall from a height. He had reportedly gone over at Marina Esplanade.

Sadly he died in hospital on April 26 from his injuries. The inquest, which was adjourned after an opening hearing on May 14, will be resumed at The Archbishop’s Palace in Maidstone on September 9,


  1. It’s so sad 13 is no age to die I remember the post well I see no mention of any family. Tragic sad whatever led up to Samuel dying this way the more I think of it is why what a waste of life. RIP Samuel no more pain or torment ???

  2. I had the pleasure of knowing this lovely boy, thoughts go out to his family, you will be so missed Sammy ? x

  3. No Parent should have to suffer the loss of a child & especially not in their teenage years when life is just starting to open up for them.
    So sad to hear that this promising young man lost his life so soon, perhaps God has other plans for him.
    The Parents you had were the ones god chose, No matter how you feel,
    They were made in mind with Gods design
    They carry his Heavenly seal
    He took you Sam because he loves you
    And I guess he always will.
    Rest in peace where ever you may be, your sprit will always be free to ride the wind, fly high little man….

  4. So so heartbroken to hear this news, I knew him for only a short while yet he left his mark on my heart …R.I.P SAMMY ??
