    Death Indexes

    I have found a death for a person on the England and Wales Death Index which gives a date of death of 26 June 2003. However on the England and Wales Civil Registration Death Index the date is given as Feb 2004. Can anyone give any explanation for this discrepancy.

    It is the same person as the date of birth matches as well as the name which is not very common.

    Thanks
    Linda

    Could it be that there was a delay in registering the death, perhaps for an inquest?

    The dates might therefore refer to actual death and the later date of registration.

      Thanks Gwyn, I did wonder about that, however I wasn't sure if 8 months was not too long between death and inquest.

        I have an ancestor who died in October 1837, but his death wasn't registered until 17/07/1838. It appears there could have been an inquest.
