Thank you Dave O (no relation!), I thought someone must have picked up on this.

As Sugden seems to have established, Wynne Baxter did indeed fulfill his obligations under the 1884 Home Office circular and lodge copies of all the depositions from the Ripper victim inquests he conducted during 1888 with the Director of Public Prosecutions.

I figured the chances of them surviving were remote but the question I was going to ask was rather what has actually happened to them? Were they deliberately destroyed as part of normal policy? Or have they simply gone missing?
