My latest death cert
« on: Saturday 30 December 17 15:10 GMT (UK) »
Just received a batch of certs (yay!)

Including... a death certificate with no cause of death on it  :-\

One might have thought that a rather important point...

Until 1874 entering the cause of death was not a legal requirement, but from 1874 a doctor's certificate was necessary before a death certificate could be issued.

Thanks.

I am a little bit mad about it though, the cause of death was the whole reason I bought the cert  ::)

That must be maddening! I have found with some London Deaths that I have managed to avoid ordering the Cert by finding the Death Register Entries; which give the cause of Death. I don't know if this just applies to London though? (London Death Registries are on Ancestry).

In terms of burials only rarely have I found cause of death mentioned with my relatives. In fact, I can only think of one off the top of my head. I'm pretty sure I must have looked for this little guy's burial but apparently not found it yet.

I'll see if I can attach this Burial Register. My G/Grandfather is the bottom entry, left hand page.

I too have cause of death in the burial registers - pre 1837.  London, and my favourite parish registers for Tadcaster, where parents are also cited.  The baptisms are even more wonderful - parents and grandparents with occupations, day and date of birth and the same for the baptism.  :D :D


 
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
Archbell - anywhere, any date
Kendall - WRY
Milner - WRY
Appleyard - WRY

Regretfully only my paternal side is London and surrounding. My maternal side favours multiple areas around the UK usually focusing in towns and villages only just large enough to bother a map maker.
