Can't make out the cause of death from the original certificate because it's been partly cut off. Can you take a wider clip of it and re-post?

The RCE reads: Injuries sustained in Consequence of deceased having had his head jammed between a gaspipe and the outer wooden frame of a bench of retorts.

What was the date of death? There is a short report in the Falkirk Herald 18 Sep 1886 mentioning a Daniel Campbell aged 21 in an accident at Bathgate, Deans Oil Works, involving retort benches.

Deans Oil Works was to the west of Arrol Square in Deans Industrial Estate, Livingston (the former Engineer Park). West Lothian Council Archives (not Local History) at the Service Centre, Kirkton Campus has a plan of the works.
