I am looking for the death record of my uncle who died when he was a child, I want to find out how old he was when he died and what his cause of death was.
My Grandmother didn't want to talk about him when she was alive so no one knows. He was the eldest child and was born less than a week after a shotgun wedding.
I have his birth record, he was born in 1946. I can't find his death record. I have searched through the death records over and over.
I'm wondering if it was common for people not to register the death of a child back then?
