This death certificate has a double match to Henry Harrison (b.1853), the youngest son of John Harrison and Elizabeth Ormandy: 1) the age at time of death (corresponds exactly); 2) the occupation. However Henry did not have a daughter Alice. His daughters’ names were Jane, Elizabeth, Ellen and Mary.
The fact that a daughter named Alice casts some doubt on whether this Henry was, in fact, our ancestor. If he was, the Registrar made an error either in the name or relationship of the informant.
