Death cert info

#1
Hi
Can anyone tell me if it's possible (and how to ) to look up anything to do with someones death? I just received death cert of my GG grandad who died at age 35. On the certificate it says he died of "Pneumonia cerebral haemorrage". Family stories say he was a drunkard and "drank himself to death" but can that cause a brain haemorrage? Can pneumonia cause it? He died in August - is it cold enough then for this?
The doctor who certified death has the letters L.A.G.P after his name. Death occured in 1890 and I haven't seen these letters after a doctor's name - at least not here in Australia. Can I find anything more? I cannot even find his birth as there were so many James Ashton's born in Manchester in 1855! I have a marriage and death certificate but cannot find enough info to climb this tree any further.
Thanks
Karen :)
