cause of death


Active member
Just received my 3x great grandads death cert it says cause of death paralysis, im wondering whether it was caused by an illness or accident ,he was only 39 yrs old and his wife had their 5th child the same month as he died which makes me think for obvious reasons his paralysis must have come on suddenly, this makes me lean more to thinking it was probably a accident , he died in 1846 Workington Cumberland and was a sailer/mariner is there a site which would tell me of any accidents that may have accurred about that time in Workington or at sea,Kind Regards Rosa.
