Cause of death
« on: Wednesday 07 March 18 13:46 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

Is anyone able to decipher the cause of death in the attached image?

None of the variations I have tried have yielded any answers.

Thank you in advance!

Oh I was reading the first letter as b or l, your answer makes much more sense, thanks!

I'd agree with 'decline', - but agree that the first letter is tricky.

Definitely 'Decline'. It's a common type of upper-case D, though rather loosely formed.
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson
