Cause of Death - Scottish RCE 1877
« on: Monday 24 August 20 22:31 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I'm looking for a little help deciphering the cause of death on this snippet from the Scottish Register of Corrected Entries in 1877.
The death record for the deceased has no cause of death recorded - the column is completely empty.

Thanks for taking a look,

Looby :)

Asphixia due to strangulation, examination of the body made by Dr Macfarlane, Kilmarnock.

Skoosh.

Thank you Skoosh and Colin. Wonderful !

I thought it said asphyxia but couldn't be sure. And the fact the strangulation is broken between two lines, totally threw me !

Looby :)
