Agnes Bridget Boland McCaffery Death Certificate

I came across a copy of the actual death certificate of my grandmother's mother who died August 4, 1915 when my grandmother was three years old. I was told she died of an appendicitis. Her cause of death is listed as a bowel obstruction. What was interesting is my great grandmother (Agnes Bridget) was a patient at Roxborough (formally known as St. Timothy's Hospital) from July 20, 1915 to her death @ 11:40pm on August 4,1915. It listed the doctor who took care of her as well as her husband, parents, where they lived what her occupation was to her burial at Holy Sepulcher on August 7,1915 and the funeral director.
