Help with cause of death and date of death please
« on: Tuesday 28 July 20 09:59 BST (UK) »
Can anyone help to decipher cause of death, I think first part reads 'Found dead from natural causes accelerated by' but can't decipher the rest.

Also there appears to be more than one date in date of death, any suggestions please.

Many thanks

There is a report  of the inquest on William Young in the Devizes & Wiltshire Gazette 31 Jan 1867: 'deceased resided alone & on Simon Bailey taking him some food he found the door closed. After making an entrance he proceeded up the stairs and found the deceased leaning against the wall quite dead and partially dressed.'

A couple of items above that was of another local inquest on John Tarrant aged 84 which decided death was due to the 'inclemency of the weather'. He was found in an outhouse with 3/4 of a loaf and a bowl of dripping.

So as Gagdet says, it must have been a very cold spell.

The date of death was 19th January. It was originally written as Jan 19th but amended to the other format. The “3” which appears is a cross-reference to the right-hand margin where the registrar’s initials are entered under amendment number “Three”.
