Cramps all over body suspected to be brought on by drinking too much water while suffering from expressive[?] head from smelting furnace of Blockains Steel Works

Dr Sutherland Garringad Road attended the deceased after he took ill.

or 'oppressive' head?

Doesn't sound good anyway  >:(

I think the split word at the end of line 1 is:   sup posed

It's definitely excessive heat in my opinion.

ADDED:

...from a smelting...

Many thanks Igor and Horselydown makes more sense than my working out is it usual one would die from cramp by drinking to much water in those circumstances...Mucho gracias as we say in Scotland.

Hi,
There is a condition(hyponatremia) caused by drinking too much water, which dilutes the bodies sodium levels and can be fatal.Symptoms include nausea,confusion,vomiting, psychotic symptoms and eventually siezures, coma and death.

That will be why old ladies warned children  who had been playing all day in the hot sunshine and were over heated not to drink too much cold water.
I am not sure that the heat of a hot sunny day could compare with a furnace in a smelting works.
Poor man , it sounds truly awful.
Clever de ciphering .
