Can you read French/Old writing?!
« on: Tuesday 13 October 20 13:45 BST (UK) »
I am new on here and hope someone can help! I am researching on Filae as half of my family are French. I would really love to understand this death listing - I can pick out bits but if I know exactly what it says it will be very helpful as to who Henri was in respect of Germaine.
I added the document as an attachment as I can't work out how to put in the body of this message.
Thank you very much in advance :)

In the year 1905 the 10 September Jaurres (?) at 11 o'clock in the morning, death card/certificate? of Henri Broudet, aged three and a half months, born in Paris, died at 184 Faubourg David ? street, yesterday morning at 9.45, son of unnamed father and Germaine Léonie Broudet, domestic servant, 102 Charenton street. Recorded by us, Casimir Florent Oliver, deputy mayor, officer of the Civil State of the 12th precinct of Paris, on the declaration of Etienne Hidieu, aged 22 years and Camille Drecholer aged 44 years, domestic employees at 184 Faubourg Saint?.....? who signed....? after reading.

Cracking job, roopat.  :)
My effort at the gaps:
Your line 1: Jaurres(?) - January (janvier in French)
Your line 2: Faubourg David (?) - Faubourg Saint Antoine
Your line 6: who signed....(?) - who signed with us (avec nous in French)

Thanks Philip - can't see why it would say janvier straight after September 🤔, not convinced by that one, will think on it - but good spot with the other gaps  ;D

More suggestions ...

The surname is surely written Broutet.
The date is 17 January 1905 (not 10 September).
Camille Drechsler (2nd witness).
