Translation, please, of death record for Anders Melqvist of Kongsberg, Buskerud

Hello,

I've located the death record for Anders Melqvist (born 25 Jul 1827 in Arvika, Sweden) who died at Kongsberg, Buskerud, Norway on 16 May 1916. His funeral/burial were held 27 May 1916. Could somebody please tell me what the notation is to the right of his name? I'm sure he was a poor man. I would also like to know the cause of his death, if possible. Here is a link to the death record:

The notation is on page 364 of the original document in Kongsberg/Kongsberg 1906-1918 in Digitalarkivet.

Thanks so much for your help.

Sincerely,
Jan

The copy book has better handwriting, (and some other information)

fhv = forhenværende = former

Cause of death (in latin) hypertrofi eystidis: I think it means enlarged gallbladder
