Typical duration of final stage of TB

Setting: Victorian England (1880s)
Searches: googled tons of articles about the progression of tuberculosis and can't believe I still can't find anything very helpful about this...

I need to know about how long it would usually take for someone with tuberculosis to die once the disease was at the stage of showing symptoms. For some reason I'm finding plenty of information about how long people might live after infection but nothing to give any specific idea of whether you'd keep living for days or months or what once it became active and you knew you had it.
