"Cause of death" in 1895
« on: Friday 26 January 18 21:54 GMT (UK) »
Good Evening All,

I have a couple of queries regarding a "Cause of death" on a death certificate from 1895.

Can anyone tell me what "349.a." means please?

Also, the letters "M.R.C.S.E."?

The full cause of death reads as follows:

349.a. Pneumonia
3 Days
Complicated by childbirth
Certified by F.T. Wilkinson
M.R.C.S.E.

Thanks very much!
Glen

P.S. I wasn't sure whether to put this here (because the death took place in Aldershot) or in the Common Room  ???

Ah I see! Thank you very much Jebber!  :)

I thought it might've been referring to a local Coroner. I'm glad I asked now! So there would be no Coroner's Report to find.

I wonder what the "349.a." at the beginning of the 'Cause of death' means?

Thanks for your help!

349.a. Pneumonia would seem to be a code and name for the disease. There are other mentions of it in Google search.

ie :- https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5142045/pdf/indmedgaz71090-0016b.pdf

Look at the heading along the top of the 4th set of temperature charts.
