    Can you read occupation

    Can anyone read the occupation for Herbert C Ostler on the 1901 census. At the top it says Essex Great Coggeshall
    Thank you

    Looks like Seedsman's Clerk to me. That's the one married to Sarah aged 34.

          I thought there were a lot of seed merchants that way, so googled it and found this:

          didn't really prove if there were a lot in East Anglia
