Missing death registration of an infant.

Hello all,:)
After much searching I am unable to find a death record for Mary Griffin born January 22nd. 1843 in East Maitland NSW, to Patrick Griffin and Bridget nee Hunt.
I recently read on Patrick's death certificate, that Mary was a deceased infant.
I had not known about this previously, and my assumption was that she grew up and married.
Is there any way of my finding out if there would have been a death registration, or was it too early in 1843.
Maybe there would have been a church death reg. similar to a baptism?
I cannot find a death for 1843/4, for a Mary Griffin, by looking at NSW BDM's.

Thanks, Joan.
