After 1874 a certificate from a registered medical practitioner as to
the cause of death was required before a death could be recorded.
Before 1874 if a doctor had provided a certificate of cause of death, it
was recorded as certified or certificate, etc. Sometimes if there was
no certificate, 'not certified', etc., was entered. In this case the
cause of death was the opinion of the informant.
I have a couple of death certificates; one has the cause of death
certificated and the other not certificated under the cause of death. The
causes of death are self-explantory but |I wondered if someone could explain
the difference between certified and not certificated.
