Ken  looking again I think you may be right 

I thought it may have been another example of indecipherable "doctors font" 

Thanks Ray

If you want to know his cause of death, as he literally died 'at home', his death certificate should tell you.

I think GRO are still doing online certificates for a small sum.

interestingly his cousins Charles Chrystal Duncan and Lionel Duncan (Brothers) both died at sea after the Ida Duncan of which Charles was the engineer and Lionel the Master hit a mine laid by U32 Herbert Bryer, 1.5 miles East of South Gare (which Ray will know). There were 4 other casualties.

The Duncans were quite a maritime family and the middle name Chrystal is prominent as was naming there vessels with Duncan in the title

Harry  Scott 19 the fireman aboard the Ida Duncan also lost his life and was washed ashore at Redcar and identified by a ring with the words "I cling to thee" given by his mother. He is buried in the same cemetery as J C Duncan. (Linthorpe)
