UK answer!.
No you cant there is nothing like that here in the UK!. If you know the date of death and the cemetery where the person was buried then you can phone and get the Information over the phone, but if you don't know the exact death date or very close to it then they have to search for it!. Here in Nottingham it's £25 for a cemetery search to be done for you!.

For England it is simple pre 1900 look at familysearch - IGI

There is also a national burial register upto 1920'ish kind people at rootschat will often look up deaths!.

Try FreeBMD which you can search Births, Marriages and Deaths

FINDMYPAST you can search for stuff, by units and look at BMDs not on FREEBMD ie 1910 to 2000Www@QuestionHome@Com

On the internet you can search for the Social Security Death Index and you might also try the free website Roots-web!. You can also visit the cemetery you believe your ancestors might be buried in and stop at the office to check for records!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Family History is becoming expensive in the U!.K, because Labour believes in privatising everything!. Look at the example of the 1911 census sold to Findmypast, when it was us that paid for it!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
