which source to trust for death date?

Classification: Query
I have two different death dates for my ancestor -- one carved on his tombstone (27 Nov) and one from his death record (4 Nov). His death record appears to have been delayed, since the "Date of Report" is the following January, which would lead me to believe the tombstone would be more accurate. But I don't know how quickly after his death he was buried, since it was November in a northern rural area. So which should I accept as accurate, or which documents do I seek as a kind of tiebreaker?
