Cause of death
« on: Thursday 01 April 21 12:23 BST (UK) »
Hi, quick question, is there a way to view a cause of death without purchasing a death certificate, for a baby that only drew breath for a short while. Thanks

None, short of someone else having purchased the certificate and publishing it on the web.

No, to know cause of death you need to purchase the death certificate unless someone already has a copy in their home

I have found "Cause of Death" of relatives on Familysearch cemetery records, they are listed under "Catalogue" although you will need to sign up but it is free, it's easier if you know where and when they were buried;

Also depends on when your relative died.

Some old burial registers have cause of death on, though the older the register is the less detail you will get. Often 'fever' or 'old age' or 'convulsions' all of which have a cause which in modern times would be diagnosed and specified.

Yes you are right Josey, some of mine don't give a cause of death, it is left blank.

I am transcribing some Middlesex registers for Family Search at the moment mid 1700s and a couple of the ministers were very good at recording COD but not all. Apart from smallpox & consumption though very unspecific, more drownings than I would have imagined & one poor soul hanged himself.
