Joseph Appleyard Cause Of Death?

Recommended Posts

History dude

A distant relation of mine Joseph Appleyard died in 1896 at just 19 years of age. Anyone who dies that young in your family tree always fascinates me as to what caused the death. So I ordered the death certificate for him to find out. Of course the problem with death certificates is that the cause is generally given in a medical form and also the hand writing is hard to read, being words also that are not commonly used doesn't help either.

So can you help with the explanation of the 7 block of text (from the right).

The second word to me looks like "obstruction". The two words underneath I think are "Cerebral embolism".

No idea on the word under it.

Then "Certified by"

the name of some doctor or something on those lines.

He was interred with the rest of his family in Burngreave Cemetery. The grave stone being lost with "improvement" works in the 80's.

If there's a map of 44 Bramwell Street that would also be useful.

Thanks guys. ;-)

Two things become clear from that. A surgeon performed an autopsy and examined his heart. And he died of what we would call a stroke.

Would the surgeon be brought in by the state or paid for by the family at that time?

Plus any information on Mr John Jeeves would be helpful.

I think the third line is 'Coma' rather than 'found'

Also, it is 44 Bennett Street, confirmed by the burial listed at SheffieldIndexers.

1890 town plan; the road to the left with the tramlines is London Road

1950, right in the corner of the map

John Jeeves, 56 Cemetery Road in 1893, 163 in 1911, 263 in 1919-1925 - probably the same house throughout with the street numbering changing to reflect new builds, earthquakes and general death and pestilence ...

Found this on the Internet Archive, Mr Jeeves is listed at that address.
