Apologies - are we to assume that you do not have a copy of your own birth certificate?

I'm confused - what makes you think Andy doesn't have a copy?

Northumberland / Re: William Morrison

William was born at haddington,east Lothian 3rd September 1859,he married Mary crumlish 1st September 1891,he died at pawston mindrum 1939 aged 80

The only possible death registration I can see is William Morrison aged 79, Northumberland North 1st, 10b, 1257, 1st q 1940.

Presumably he died towards the end of December 1939 but the death wasn't registered until the very beginning of the following year.

Mindrum was in the parish of Carham, which fell within Northumberland North 1st Registration District.
The only William Morrison death I can see in that district was in 1940, but he was aged 79, not the age you say he was  :-\

The snip in the original posting appears to be from a transcription. This is the original, followed by an example of the letter 'g' from the same page.

Here's another one - the occupation of Thomas Grant of Niblet's Court

I think it might be tiler etc.

For anyone who wants to examine the page in detail this is the baptism of Sophia Pike, daughter of Thomas & Kitty Pike of Ellbroad Street Bristol, 25th December 1808.

Looking at the writing elsewhere on the same page I'm not convinced that the 6th letter is 'g'  :-\

I agree with GR2 - anasarca, which can be associated with heart problems.
