    • Shown as 'of 25 Abbott Street ...' on his death certificate, but he had been in the asylum for about 18 months, so presumably this means that was his address before admission.
    Medical From 4 Nov 1899 to 3 Jul 1901  Lancashire County Lunatic Asylum, Rainhill, Lancashire, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location

    Cause: General Paralysis - 18 months 
    • GRO ref: Gotham, George q3 1901 aged 31 Prescot RD 8b 56
      Actual date from asylum register, also date and place from death certiciate.
      'General paraylsis' was a term used to refer to syphilis, which in its later stages caused insanity, hence his being in the asylum.
      Surprisingly his wife was the informant for the death registration, but perhaps with informatin supplied by the asylum - it does not say 'present at the death'.
    Notes 
    • (Research):The enumerator has dittoed scholar for George in 1871 when he was aged only 8 months (and for a 2 month old baby on the same page); clearly this seems wrong so I am not showing his as such.
