    can you read this occupation? .. sorry to be a pain

    William S Birch in 1891

    RG12; Piece: 4257; Folio 93; Page 52

    he is dead by 1901 so can't compare. It doesn't look like coal miner to me, like some of the others on the page.

      It looks like cartman to me.

      (= horse-drawn cart driver, according to Old Occupations - C)

          Cartman. There's one on the previous page in slightly clearer handwriting.
