Occupation on a Death Record
« on: Tuesday 23 March 21 13:18 GMT (UK) »
Hi all!

Looking for help on the following occupation listing: 'Wife of a __?__'.

My first guess would be 'bookmaker', but I'm pretty sure I have that wrong. The first three letters almost look like 'Bod.' with a full stop for an abbreviation.

All suggestions gratefully received!  :)

Boot Merchant  :-\
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!

Yes I agree with boot merchant.
Part of the n and the final t have spilled over into the next column along.

Ah, I can see it now! The slightly incomplete crossings on the 't's were throwing me.

Thank you both!  :)
