He was described as a “Baker Master” and his cause of death was recorded as “hydrothorax” (fluid accumulated in the pleural cavity often associated with cirrhosis and liver failure). His death was registered by “Harriet Heath, present at the death, Pound Street” – there is no indication as to whether this was his widow or his daughter.
