I received my grandmothers death certificate today and wondered if anyone could work out section 6 and 7.

Thank you in advance for any help

I think the first part is Coma?, pontine haemorrhage and the third part is hypertension. I am still trying to work out the second part.

The second is Glioblastoma (a cancerous tumour) but I cannot make sense of what. Nettie just beat me to it.

Under the name of informant says "causing the body to be buried" which googling tells me is referring to the person who is giving the instructions to the undertaker.
