Cause of Death - MCO?

Postby walthamx » Fri Aug 10, 2018 2:03 pm

A cousin of mine died in 1920 in the Halser Naval Hospital, his cause of death is down as MCO.

Does anyone know what this stands for?

Is that a naval abbreviation used in the hospital records or the cause as stated on a death certificate ?

Hi,
MCO may be morbis cordis organic, which was a term back then for any heart disease.
Regards,

If you want the full cause - get a copy of the death certificate - abbreviations shouldn't be used on those, so you should get the details you want.
