death location is numbers... do they mean anything?

The death location is "1651813, 1651436," which doesn't belong in the death place datafield. But do they mean something? Should they be added to the text? As... what? GPS coordinates? (I have no idea.)

Good question. I used a gps coordinates lookup utility and these appear to be coordinates, the location of which pops up in England, approximately Wales. Someone alot smarter than me would have to explain how it works.

thanks! That lets me know it's of value. Now to figure out why!
Sometimes you will find Ancestry Trees with these locations.
Thanks y'all! I edited the profile, moving the numbers to the bio under research notes.

From what I can see those were imported with the GEDCOM upload, but we can not be sure who did that' They  do not meet the WikiTree style guide so if someone knows where that is supposed to be they should be moved to the biography section and the correct location added as I see Liz has done.
