Causes of Death
« on: Monday 04 March 19 07:13 GMT (UK) »
I don't really know where to post this, as I am very new to it all, but someone helped me find an ancestor's cause of death a couple of days ago and I was hoping somebody on here could tell me my other ancestor's causes of death, if possible:-

Lucy Brown (1886-1983.
Charlotte Devereux (1832-1924).
Ernest Gilbert Croshaw (1886-1948).
Charles Victor Jackson (1888-1979).
Mark Henry West (1848-1911).
Rachel West (nee Webb) (1851-1934).
George Albert Goffin (1867-1927).

Thank you all in advance.

Died where?


Give a man a record and you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to research, and you feed him for a lifetime.

Causes of death are generally only available by purchasing death certificates unless for some reason it has appeared in a newspaper.  Anyone trying to help you would need to know where they died

Thank you.

Lucy died in Cottingham, Yorkshire.
Charlotte possibly died in Blofield, Norfolk.
Ernest died in Hull, Yorkshire.
Charles died in Hull too.
Mark also died in Hull, as did Rachel and George too.
