Hi did you get any further with the  'Result of precognition'.  I have found a member of my families death registration with this on it.  No other cause of death and the death was registered by the chief constable.  Also says ' in a drain in barefoot' which makes no sense at all.

thanks for any enlightenment you can give


Where a death occurs in a public place the Procurator Fiscal  has a duty to investigate. The preliminary investigation would have been carried out by the Police and a report of their findings submitted to the Fiscal. Upon receipt of the report the Fiscal  could decide to investigate further and in this capacity would formally interview the witnesses (the precognition) before deciding upon any further action.

Is there any stamp or annotation at the side of the death entry showing that there is an RCE (entry in the Register of Corrected Entries)? If so, there should be a "button" above the death entry image on Scotland's People which you can press to see the entry which will be free of charge. It may have nothing different from the original entry but there may just be something different on it. It is quite common for there to be an RCE in the case of a sudden or suspicious death.
