*** COMPLETED *** Handwriting Help Please
« on: Monday 05 April 10 11:43 BST (UK) »
Hello All,

Attached is a death record from Scotland's People. My interest is the second listed, John Swan (GGF).

Specifically, could anyone hazard a guess on the cause of death?   " .... of stomach 6 months". 

Neither can I make out the certifying doctor's name, but I'm less concerned with that.

My thanks.


Ian

Hi Ian

Or Ulceration of stomach perhaps?
