You would expect this record to be available on the pay website Findmypast, as this series of records from the India Office Records at the British Library is there. However there were a few records which were not suitable for digitisation and so are not available on Findmypast.
Findmypast is available free at FamilySearch Centres.
Otherwise, the digitised microfilm is available at a Family Search Centre, or perhaps at a Family Search Affiliate Library, or from the British Library for a fee.
For information generally, see the FIBIS Fibiwiki's webpage Beginners' Guide0
'No', the 'General Registry Office' ( GRO ) of 'England and Wales', through H.M. Passport Office, of the Government of the 'United Kingdom' will NOT be able to provide you with ANYTHING, with regard to those Records (ie. India Deaths and Burials, 1719-1948)
The "Images" in 'FamilySearch' can be accessed at "Family History Centres" of the Church, around the World (or, "Affiliate" Libraries, around the World).
But, that said, unfortunately, sadly, many of those FHCs and Affiliate Libraries are still TEMPORARILY "Closed" due to the Worldwide "COVID-19" Pandemic.
As an aside ...
I just noticed that you raised this matter, in this "Community.FamilySearch" Forum, back on 10 November 2020, last year:
This is my 1st time on this forum, sorry if this question is incorrect.
I am looking to obtain a copy of a death/burial record that I have found on Family Search, I believe this could be my Great Grand Father. I cannot get to a Family history centre
[ Obviously, you have had no success, there ... ]
Apart from what proffered in the aforementioned ...
And, apart from "Families in British India Society" (FiBIS) ...
Can I suggest that you also try the following:
Family History Search
India Office Family History Search
The India Office Records
East India Company
[ But, unfortunately, I do not know if you will have any more success there ... ]
Failing that ...
Lets hope, that another User/Patron, in this "Community.FamilySearch" Forum, can help/assist you directly ...
