If there is no body, there is no proof that a specific person has died, so
there can be no death registration. If someone is believed to have died, and
there body is subsequently found and can be identified, there will be an
inquest. Then their will be a death registration, but instead of the normal
date and place of death the details recorded will be "Body found on (date)
at (place)". In the registration there will be no attempt to identify when
and where the person died.
