Death registed in one country and buried in another?

A nightmare for the likes of us people :rolleyes:

Recently someone we know had a brother who died in England. The brother was born and lived in Australia but died whilst on holiday in England. They flew his body home to Australia for burial.

So his death would be reg. in England and even tho he was buried in Australia :confused:

Or could they also reg. his death in Australia? :confused:

So in 200 hundred years time when a descendant is looking in QLD for his death index they will be left wondering why his death isnt reg. :eek:

I find it interesting that almost all the English death reg don't list place of burial.

I have not yet attempted to find place of burial in England for any post 1900 deaths I have in my tree.
