My attempt - but can't tell the name of the river. What part of the country was the death in?

On September
twenty sixth
body found in River
... at the ...
Dock Park (Last
seen alive on evening
of 24th September
on Dock Park
near the River)

PS. I would email ScotlandsPeople and ask if they can give you a better copy. They are usually good about this.

Hi

I think the River is the River Nith in Dumfriesshire - possibly Dock Park is in Dumfries itself.

Added - yes:

Just noticed that  first two posters have   suggested Suffocated - on Scottish certs, the date is given first and it is September.

I read it as:

1896
On September
twenty sixth
body found in River
Nith at the ?
Dock Park (last
seen alive on evening
of 24th ?
on  Dock Park
near the Road)
