It would normally be a family member or by order of the coroner.
I have a burial record for 1912 in Llanllwchaearn church .On the
record there is a name of the person responsible for the burial
.Although the name is the same as that of her husband's ,there is a
middle initial that I haven't come across on any certificate or
My late father in law's death certificate has similar wording. The
person was his apparently his second wife. However, they were not
married even though the lady used her "husband's" surname. Both her
own surname and her adopted surname were given.
Could the person be a pre-marital son named for his father, with an
additional given name but registered in his mother's maiden name?
Then, once his parents had married, he took on his father's surname
even though he may not have had his birth registered?
