Census writing unclear?
« on: Friday 27 August 21 17:31 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to work out what the occupation is on a census record, but even touching up the faded image is only of limited use to me. To me, it looks like "Grocer and Lover Dealer" but I very much doubt that it is...  ;D

Can anyone decipher this for me?

It looks like Grocer & Corn Dealer to me.
