1. Your query is incomplete. What is the nature of rectification you want to make in the death certificate?

2. Death certificate is issued by the registrar which has jurisdiction over the place where the cremation took place. Another registrar cannot assume jurisdiction.

If burning ghat comes under different municipality and that registrar has no jurisdiction then you need to rectify it. You can surrender certificate to the registrar and apply afresh before competent registrar office with duly attested copy of surrendered certificate. Then you can get death certificate.
