For the purposes of a death certificate, England should include Cornwall
but not Wales.
However, as I think there has always been at least a little confusion abroad
as to what the word "England" actually means, it could also include Wales
(or even Scotland, I suppose). It depends on who filled the certificate in,
and how well they knew the geography of the British Isles.
