In all probability, the death certificate would not help to ascertain a place of burial or cremation. The main reason for that is that a death has to be registered before funeral arrangements can be finalised. Additionally, a death is registered in the district where it occurred, which is not necessarily the deceased's normal place of residence. Then, the family might arrange for burial/cremation in another locality that has some family significance. It is also possible that a crematorium (if there was a cremation in this case) other than that normally associated with a particular area was used - because the family had reason to hold the funeral earlier than was possible at the 'usual' crematorium, or because the 'usual' crematorium was temporarily out of use for technical reasons.
