Occupation listed on a Death Certificate
« on: Friday 01 January 21 06:53 GMT (UK) »
Hello, attached is the occupation listed on a death certificate in 1886, it looks to me like Pig Buyer but I wanted to double check - if anyone thinks this looks like something else please let me know.

What is his occupation on censuses?  Could he be a buyer of pig iron?
