Is there anything written at the side of the certificate.  I think the 32 relates to Cold being deleted and replaced by Coal

 The Registration  acts state that corrections of errors discovered, at the time of entry, before completion of the certificate are numbered and initialled in, normally, the right hand margin of the certificate, they have to be numbered, obviously to prevent someone coming along later and altering an entry.
This is the 32nd correction.

I think his occupation (after correction) is probably Coal Metre someone who measures coal.
