Need help on past and present Laws and Tradition in both Ireland and the UK-
In the Present does the deceased family place an obit or Notice in local or regional papers ?
If they fail or refuse to do this--it just does not get posted anywhere?
I ask as a cousin in South Sligo passed 12/31/2012 and I cannot find an Obituary anywhere (except a no longer existing notice on westRadio).
What about in the past century (late1800s, early 1900s) was it much the same? (I.e. if the family did not place an Obituary in a paper, it simply Did not get published)?
finally, if this is the case (no obituary published) does Death Certificate get done by whom (Hospital the deceased was taken to)?
