DC confirms Martin Kelly died from TB at home.  He was a Steel Spindle Maker.

We need a burial record

Thomas Kelly is buried in St Joseph's RC Cemetery, Moston. Section : D 689. (Credit Chris @ IFCP)
We need to see if there is a headstone and review the condition of any inscription.

Thomas Kelly's case has been rejected for commemoration by CWGC
The pension record clearly states he had "Tuberculosis due to"  service and he died from this condition.  There is no evidence contradicting the statement of attributable.
