Chrome I think.
 It takes me to the search page and I put in the details it comes up with a blue number 1 as if it has found him but doesn't show the details.

I tried and at first didn't get a result.

Then I tried the 'less is more' approach. Put Watts in as the name , sex as male and age as 39, nothing else and hit enter.

The result came up in seconds. click on the name and you'll see the images.
Click the first image and it opens.
Right click the open image and you can then use the option to save it to your computer.
Rinse and repeat for the second image.

Thankyou,

It worked. I have managed to look at and save the information. It all sounds very sad.
It doesn't have his name on the book but the facts check out with the date of death I have too.

Thank You For all your help.
Mary

Something is askew here.
At the top of the left page, it says Joseph Warren, age 72, and if you search him, you get the same images.
Somehow they attached the wrong images to your John Watts.
The dates would just appear to match as they are all in the same period of time.

Looking at it, there are 2  images each of which have 2 pages.
The first appears to relate to Joseph Warren and it says he was admitted 24th June 1879 and died 30th June 1879.

The second, though there is no name, begins on 5th Oct 1889 and says he died at 11.40 pm 5th June 1891 so can't refer to Joseph Warren.

So, though its not 'quite right' the OP does say it matches the date and place of death on the death certificate.

If it were me, I'd email the holders of the records, explain the problem and ask if its possible to  confirm that pages 295 and 296 'do' relate to John Watts.

Yes I think it is him as it fits date wise, I will try and get to the Hive and have a look
sometime. He was a carpenter/Coach builder so that would fit too.

It does look like its the right record from what you can see on the death cert.

If / when you do go, please let us know what you find. Knowing how it turned out could well help others in the future.

Plus, of course, I am 'really' nosey!

When you contact them, this might help:
The patient number in the index is actually the image number in the url.  The book is filmed in order of admission dates, and while tracking them to get to John's date of 25 Mar 1889, his shows that Joseph Warren instead.  So Joseph shows at two links:

http://theinfirmary.educationhost.co.uk/Patient.php?PatientNo=4045
and
http://theinfirmary.educationhost.co.uk/Patient.php?PatientNo=5757
