When did you look for a funeral? There's a probate record for him in 1981 saying he died in March 1980, but the funeral and issuing of the death certificate would be months later.

Deaths Sep 1980

Because there was an inquest, the coroner will release the body for a funeral once they have completed the post-mortem examinations and no further examinations are needed.

There is only one death registered in Liverpool in 1980 which was of a man born 23rd March1910. Would a 70-year-old have been working in those days?

The burial in Linthorpe tallies with a different death record on freebmd


The 1910 birth is for a man in the OP’s tree - so it is the right death record

Please could you clarify which registry has missing pages ?

Could he have been buried right away from the area?

You could contact the Council cemeteries department. with a name and dates they might be able to locate the burial or cremation site

My aunt left her body to medical science and, several months later, after the students had finished, she was tidied up and returned to the family for burial.

UNCLE-William Casey, killed accidently, at work. 1980, Inquest and autopsy took place. Death certificate issued. Disposal of his remains, either never recorded , OR, were removed illegally. Liverpool Record office , say they are mystyfied. Pages missing from registry. Family member's say they know nothing of it. what are the legal requirements for allowing a body to be used for medical research? Could there be financial inducement ? AND---what would become of ANY remains, of the deceased in those circumstances?
