Death registered 4 months after death
« on: Sunday 25 April 21 13:18 BST (UK) »
CLEGG, JOHN    58 
GRO Reference: 1859  J Quarter in DEWSBURY  Volume 09B  Page 322

I have an ancestor John Clegg grocer who died aged 58 on 28 Dec 1858. An inquest was held 29 Dec 1958, as his body was found in bed. It was reported in The Leeds Tomes on 1 Jan 1859. I obtained the death certificate. The informant was the Coroner a Thomas Taylor.

The death was registered on 26 Apr 1859. Why would such a delay in registration happen? Could it be as simple as the Coroner not informing the Register Office sooner?

Thanks for any ideas.
