I hope they dont look at this board then


Unknown Report 2 Sep 2004 00:36

dying of teeth - was dentition - usually small children having multiple teeth coming through at once and it being too much for them and causing convulsions then death :-( One of our rellies died of TABES DORSALIS - probably caused by the effects of an injury 15 yrs previously - and then I discovered it was a social disease!! My Gt gt Grandfather was found dead in the street one morning - cause of death - apparantley apoplexy!!!!

i know marion - with using scotlands people site a lot you get 3 death certs for the price of one so to speak - a buy one get 2 free lol - some of the causes of death they put on the certs are hilarious - but there were a lot of the dentition ones one I saw had cause of death - a bleeder - not very nice was it lol but I really think they meant haemophelia but couldnt spell it.

Sometimes I take a break from the tips and records board in case some people over on the general board have a joke or two going. But I have to say I havent laughed so much in years, Well I think you should keep this thread going its the best thing I have seen here. Although I have checked these boards a long time before joining in I have never seen anything so funny. Brilliant stuff, thank you all for making me laugh so much I nearly lost my teeth in me Guinness>>> GREAT Stuff!!! Love Pat x

hi Pat . I nearly got flung out of a registrars office for bursting out laughing when I got a death cert for poor little great aunt Princess May Gage Evans, who was only 4. well they had written daires, dhyereo, and a couple of other attempts then crossed it out and put loose bowels. - well I thought it was funny.

Teeth - gum infections can cause blood poisoning. Best death I have had so far is 'fell out of bed', but the ones I have read are much more interesting


Unknown Report 2 Sep 2004 01:27

should have mentioned as well - poor little Princess lived in Pontefract - where the liquorice is from - wonder if there was a connection

Denise Report 2 Sep 2004 22:54

so what do you think of the death by chincough?


Unknown Report 2 Sep 2004 22:59

Chincough sounds like a horrid mix of whooping cough and chickenpox. Particularly unpleasant if you are also suffering from teeth!


Denise Report 2 Sep 2004 23:01

Yup, I think i'd rather be suffocated by liqors spiritus any day lol
