Default Unusual Occupation

Looking at the 1939 register for a man and his wife finds her widowed and her occupation as housekeeper.

He is listed on the next line, as married, and his occupation is "lying dead".

It is not a weird job description either, he was a farm carter, or labourer, his whole life.
