Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Death certificate

There are the initials 'p m' under the entries and perhaps a post mortem was done to ascertain the cause/s of death.

Could you let us know the County please.  Tending towards thinking that the word runs on from Carrick as you can see in the entry above.  Looks a bit like Renall? So Carrick Renall or Penal?

Or even Carlia or Corlia but I like Caelia (from Dublin1850)  as an option.

I think the person's name is Henry Heath and the name of place he lives, possibly his residence, is 'Eider'.  Growing up our property had a name and it was always put in quote marks like this is.

Looks a bit like Duncan to me.  Perhaps 'S' is the initial.

Mistakes made when people believe you need to pronounce the 'e' at the end. I am sure that there are families who do pronounce the 'e' and families who don't.

Residence looks like Frenchpark/farm and Gregan(?)  Randalstown.

The occupation looks as though Private has been crossed out and 'Died' written in. 

Witnesses look like

James Moore and E M Craig

Looks like 29 March to me. I think the 2 was originally a 1.

Agree. In trying to amend the writer has put a blot on by accident.
