Who was present at death?
« on: Wednesday 24 January 18 17:25 GMT (UK) »
Sarah what? Can't quite make it out. Also, who could she be? I've never heard of her so why would she be present. Thanks

Sarah Cowen.   She could have been a neighbour or friend

ADDED No 13 is missing in 1881

Corven  :-\  As he died of Typhus fever, I would hazard a guess that the place of death was a hospital, and she was, perhaps, a nurse.  :-\

He died at 21 Flag Lane Sunderland

So if she was the informant, she would not be a nurse? Or did nurses go to their houses?

I would doubt it was a nurse.  Maybe just someone in the community that visited the sick  :-\

My apologies, I didn't see the place of death - I assumed she was a nurse, because of the cause of death  :-[  Wrong again  :-X

Sarah made her mark. Wouldn't she have to be literate to be a nurse?

I am thinking about following written instructions!
