Handwriting on death cert help
« on: Saturday 06 November 21 15:10 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
I am having a bit of trouble understanding part of the attached certificate, I am getting some words, but not complete.  Is anybody able to assist on both cause of death and description.

Thanks

Or instead of doctor's initials, perhaps PM for post-mortem. Doctors' initials aren't usual.

Not important, but the coronerís surname is G. W. HUNTBACH.   
Side tracked to a friendís very interesting Norfolk families. MORGAN, PRATT, HORNOR, SUCKLING, GLEANE etc. And in London DOWNES, du CROZ, MORGAN (same MORGANs as the Norwich lot)

PM for Post mortem sounds about right.

But thanks again all - much appreciated!
