I wish I did have a death certificate Peter, she was my grandfathers sister
and she died at the age of 21 in 1922. So I expect I could get one. This
was just what my grandfather told the family, it was backed up by my gran
who said his mother told her the same thing. I believe an autopsy was done
and that was the end result but back then they did tend to make such
decisions based on what they saw. It is on my list of to check outs !
I would expect the kidneys may be right because the comment has always been
made that she died unexplainably young.
It would be interesting to know.
