              Still puzzling over address.

              When you ordered the death cert, was the registration district Swansea (only Ellen aged 62 I can see in the indexes for July 1896)? :conf:

              PS found on Google Plasmarl, Swansea. Place called Landore nearby. Is that it possibly?

              I can see on the map Neath Road

                I don't think its London. Could it be Plasmail, Landero? Not very familiar with south Wales!

                  I think that's right, Carol. Well done - I've been looking around Clapham as there is a Heath Road there! :emb:

                    Plasmarl brings you to a picture of a terraced house on Google maps of 1145 Neath Road (approx address) - I may be going astray here!

                      Well spotted Carol and Anne!
                      That looks more likely.

                        does Chronic bronchitis, 2 months,Morbus Cordis mean she had it for 2 months?

                          She had chronic bronchitis for 2 months that the doctor knew about and died when her heart gave out.
