A mature child of two main characters dies which I would argue counts in terms of emotional commitment but not in terms of general triggers concerning death of children.

Not really a jumpscare, but a character is shot in the head in the middle of speaking during a scene in the trenches of WWI.

None shown; a few characters are shown playing with a ouija board in the Season 2 Christmas special, but it's largely used for comedic purposes and explicitly has various characters controlling the board themselves to tease the others or get their own points across. However, at the very end of the special, there is one instance of what is heavily implied to be (and confirmed by Julian Fellowes) the ghost of Lavinia genuinely communicating through the board.

1x02 - About 11 minutes in, Mrs. Crawley visits the hospital. They mention the word dropsy. Mute/look away for a minute. A man coughs up some blood. The noise is horrible. It’s over quite quickly- by 12:55 they’re outside the hospital. 2x05 - has Matthew v* into a bowl- you don’t see it but you can hear it a bit. He talks about being sterile and then says he’s going to be s* and then leans over a bowl that Mary holds for him. 2x08 - there are a few people in the house with Spanish flu; the scene has Lady Grantham writhing in her bed and then she leans over the bed and v* into a bowl. You don’t see it at all, but the scene is distressing to begin with and you can hear it. 6x05 - very very very distressing. The family and Neville Chamberlain are at the dinner table and Robert has been experiencing pain throughout the season, but after a few minutes he stands up, asked to be excused but then suddenly (and very graphically) v* blood across the table about three times. The rest of the scene he continues to s*u* blood. After the scene is over, you can still see blood on people's clothes, so to be completely safe, skip about 5-6 mins after you see them seated at the table.

Thomas, who is gay, seeks conversion treatment in Season 5, which includes electro-therapy. This is never shown on-screen, but it is discussed several times, and the physical effects are clear, as is his mental deterioration.

At one point of the series, the manor functions as a hospital. The hospital is important to the family and they support it. The main doctor is a frequent character and his office is shown multiple times.

In S5, Thomas uses needles/syringes as part of his after-treatment from his conversion therapy. This is discussed, but never explicitly shown, though we do see an abscess he developed as a result of the injections.

No character has cancer in the show, but there is a storyline where Mrs. Hughes believes she may have cancer, and her (and others') worry and distress over this is palpable until she gets the all-clear.

Beginning in season 6, this is a recurring plot point. It's hinted at in episodes 1-3 of the season. Episode 4 includes a scare, but ends well.

No slurs are used, but there are multiple instances where Thomas has his sexuality belittled, especially by Carson -- Carson calls Thomas foul and revolting, and says he should be horsewhipped for his sexuality.

A major plot point for the early episodes is Mr. Bates' disability. During one scene, a character kicks Mr. Bates' cane out from under him and he falls face down on the ground.

A Jewish character is told his family isn't really Russian because they're Jewish. Several other characters make antisemitic remarks about the marriage between a Jewish character and a non-Jewish character. There is also a reference to the pogroms in Russia.

Mr. Bates, in a verbal altercation with his wife, Vera, raises his hand to strike her and calls her a b***h. It's also implied (and confirmed by Julian Fellowes in the script books) that he mistreated her badly in the past, though we're told he was never physically abusive.

Sybbie Branson is verbally abused by the family's Nanny on account of her father being a working-class chauffeur. The Nanny is reported on, overheard, and immediately fired, and this does not continue past the first scene we hear it.

There are multiple scenes set in the trenches of WWI, which include both gunshot sounds and on-screen gun violence. Two characters are shot -- one nameless character is shot in the head, and Thomas is shot in the hand. There are also several hunts, but the gun use in these scenes is mostly just implied.

In 6x05 between around 39:40 and 40:20 someone spews up alot of blood due to an ulcer bursting. It's (relatively to the series) very shocking. After the spewing of blood the character lies on the ground with alot of blood around/ on him. After 40:20 there is still some blood seen on the other characters it landed on, but its not very graphic or anything.
