Would that be Contagious or infectious?
I'm open to correction here but I think the carrier is infectious and the carried infection would be contagious. If correct that would make the body infectious. I think by this time not only was the plague pit passe but there were procedures in place for such remains.
Meantime back to the question I have examples of Doctors and caregivers present at the death as informants but I always assumed that the informant had to know the deceased, at least briefly, in life and thus be able to identify the remains if not present at the passing.

I've not come across an undertaker registering a death, but may
be I have too small a sample of death certificates.
Could he have been a relative? I can just picture a family asking an
undertaker relative to help sort out all the details.
