In our Province and others that I have researched:

This will show all personal information as required at the time - and known to the informant.
Name and Address of Deceased. Date and Place of Birth

Place of birth of the Parents.
Marital Status - Name of Spouse [ will show maiden name ]
Occupation. Industry. Time at Occupation- Last worked.
Name and Address of Informant. Relationship to Deceased.
Date Of Death. Some may show Cause of Death - or may be separate.
Burial or Cremation.
Name and Address of Funeral Home, Cemetery, Physician.
*Contacting the Funeral Home - may also prove helpful - they will have further information that does not appear in the Registration of Death - or the Obituary. [there may be concern re Privacy]
Here - the Death Certificate is :
