note of death

Mors is Latin for death. From the context, it seems to be a journal entry describing the occurance/circumstance/cause of death?

Mind you that the word mors as a noun can also used among medical personnel to refer to a corpse. Based on this, it could also be a note affixed to the corpse, but it does not sound probable here.

Death note

"medical certificate of cause of death" might be a more formal way to express it

If you are a registered medical practitioner and were in attendance during the deceased's last illness, you are required to certify the cause of death. You must state the cause or causes of death to the best of your knowledge and belief.
