This is the death certificate of Adolf Abramowitz, son of Markus Abramowitz and Fanny Sonnenfeld.

If possible, I would like to have a translation of the complete record.

I am, however, primarily interested in any stated cause of death (which we do not know), and any details concerning occupation, residence, relationships, and informant details.
