Can anyone help decipher the time in this document.

He was too "exhausted to be conscious he died within a few hours of his admission at ??? a.m. on 25th October.

I think it's 4.30 a.m. but not certain.

I would agree with Waddell, 4.30 a.m.

Thank you. I took at as the time of death but I suppose it could mean the time of admission?

Also if he died at this time and place it's likely he was wounded on the 24th, would that be correct?

Yes, 4.30 a.m.

I copy & paste document on to a word.doc & lighten & define to read it better.

Mike, having looked at this several times now I would suggest the 4.30 am, 25th October, would be the time of him dying after his admission. If the “& was buried” is not the end of the sentence what follows may give further insight to the overall meaning and grave location.

Many thanks Jeff. Yes it was the time I wanted to confirm. He was buried at the Convent Cemetery.

 

cottoner, I will get back to you and pm you. Not sure I can help a great deal with the family tree but where I can, I will.
