    Could someone have a go at what the two words underlined are? Latin Domic Cohraine death.JPG

    It is a burial record for Dominic Cochraine, I have included the next two entries to give more examples.

    From previous research etc I can read what the rest says even though the spelling is a bit different.

    Anno 1872 die 2 Junii Dominic Cochraine + Lanesfield atatis 8 annos ________ Deo ________ cujus corpus sepultum Est in Caemeterio Catholico afund Sedgley die 7 Junii 1872.

    Don't worry I wont ask for a translation

    I got the 2nd word as 'reddidit' which changes the translation a bit, also the afund I got as asund

    Anno 1872 die 2 Junii Dominic Cochraine + Lanesfield atatis 8 annos ________ Deo reddidit cujus corpus sepultum Est in Caemeterio Catholico asund Sedgley die 7 Junii 1872.

    In the year 1872 on June 2 Dominic Cochraine + Lanesfield Norway ________ 8 years ago he gave up his body was buried in the cemetery Catholic asunder Sedgley on 7 June 1872.

    + is an abbreviation for Defuncti (Died)

    Another take on it:

    Anno 1872 die 2 Junii Dominic Cochraine ex Lanesfield ætatis 8
    annos animam Deo reddidit cujus corpum sepultum est in Cæmeterio
    Catholico apud Sedgley die 7 Junii 1872.

    I think the rest of you have mostly got the meaning, but for the bits I've suggested:

    ex Lanesfield - from Lanesfield
    animam ... reddidit - he gave up his spirit
    apud - often just 'at' (you see it in Latin probates etc)
