Mr Charnock
« on: December 23, 2005, 02:53:25 AM »
In 1959 (according to British Foreign Office documents) a minute was prepared by a Foreign Office official giving details of a Mr Charnock who claimed to have been in Russia at the time of the murders.

Mr Charnock alleged that the murders were carried out "in the house of a regional manager of his company".  The company is unfortunately not specified.

According to later Foreign Office notes Mr Charnock was "approached by the son of the said regional manager who was a Major in the Russian army with an offer to rescue the Tsar".

Charnock was, indidentally, quite convinced of the murder story and apparently had photographs of the murder room.

Given that we know that the murder took place in the Ipatiev house, does anyone know whether Ipatiev was a regional manager of a company (I've always assumed he was independent) and whether he had a son in the Russian army?

Many thanks, I'll be in touch.  It's in the hope of obtaining this kind of useful information that I post on here.
