Cause of death of Margaret Mylan, nee Spencer, 1917
« on: Sunday 12 September 21 23:31 BST (UK) »
I can't read the last couple words in cause of death for Margaret. Apparently, she had been an invalid for 3 years as per her husband John's draft registration in Jan 1917. Since they only married in Feb 1913, she was an invalid for most of the marriage. Thanks for any help.

Thank you everyone. I think you are right Bookbox. Now I will google that to see what that means as far as effects on the body.
