    would mostly be from a stroke, or could have been hemiplegia, where one side of the body is paralysed because of a stroke in one hemisphere of the brain. my ancestor had hemiplegia for 8 mths in 1881, so it depends on cause as to how long someone can survive.

    There is also "general paralysis [of the insane]" which is a polite term for syphilis.

    I have often thought paralysis probably referred to a stroke, as I've also come across "paralysed down one side."

    Phthisis Pulmonisis turned out to be Tuberculosis as my GGF cause of death I would never have know that but for this site it is excellent ans shows many forms of use for the medical terms and where they were found.

    I have that site too Edna. Got a bit of a shock when i found the cause of my GGF's death. I see paralysis as a cause of death is on there.

    These days if you're paralised they have machines that help with breathing etc. Didn't have them in the olden days, so she wouldn't be able to survive.

    Oh sorry, I see what you mean Val. If it was severe paralysis, like Christopher Reeves for example, it could cause other complications that could cause death. If it's an old cert maybe they didn't bother with main cause, secondary cause etc and just listed the initial problem?
