Can anyone read the cause of death on my ancestors certificate? Delirium something???
Thank you, in anticipation

The second word ends in 'cus' and looks like Fieincus.

Delirium Frincus  - associated with Alzheimers disease.

33 years is very early age to get that - early age onset Alzheimer's disease unless this was misdiagnosed for another mental health condition that displayed similar symptoms.  Some medical conditions also alter the blood chemistry balance resulting in Alzheimer/Dementia like symptoms.

My father developed such when he was prescribed extremely strong diuretics in hospital and his water intake-urine output wasn't monitored - the doctors diagnosed rapid onset dementia and it was only when I challenged that on the advice of a friend who was the assistant director of nursing at Broadmoor Hospital that they set up proper charts and found he was dehydrating altering his blood chemical balance.  When proper balance between intake-output was restored his mental faculties were restored, dad was back with us.

Did they know much about these things then?

I'm not questioning the link between dehydration and delirium, but delirium frincus isn't a term that Google recognises.
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

That is weird, I did find it earlier this morning but agree it doesn't come up now!

I'll ask a cousin who's a retired consultant anesthetist if he can decipher the cause.

My cousin agreed its Delirium Tremens, latter word poorly written as some letters nothing like elsewhere in the certificate.
