    Death Cert. transcription help

    I've got a death certificate for my great grandfather which confirmed the family rumor that he was a patrolman at the time of his death but now I need help to transcribe his "cause of death". If I can get that sorted I'll be able to either confirm or deny yet another family rumor about his death (I don't want to say as I feel it could potentially cause a bias but if anyone thinks it may help I'll be happy to disclose it). I am way out of my depth here as I know absolutely nothing of the medical field or the terminology used therein, I was hoping that I could have a bit of help.

    Looks like the second word in the cause of death is nephritis.

    It does look like that, if I can get those other words sorted it may help paint the picture. Thank you for your help!

    The first word might be "chronic". "Chronic nephritis" was a common cause of death in the 19th Century:

    The first letter in the third word crosses the lower line, so is likely a "j" or a "p".

    Fantastic! Thank you all so much, it's sincerely appreciated. The family rumor was "crushed by an elevator/elevator accident" depending who you asked

    Thanks again to everyone!

    Looks like a winner to me. Internet searches show that it is a known condition and probably not a pleasant way to die.
