Information request - Registration of a death in Poznan area in 1914 #poland

Peter Wollinski

Before beginning a search for a death certificate at the archives in Poznan, it will be appreciated if advice was received as to whether I may be wasting my time.  
In this case, a  notice appeared in a newspaper in 1914 which advised that a lady had been found frozen to death in the Jaktorow Forest near Samotschin (Prussia) now Szamocin Poland. The lady was identified as living in Gollantsch now Golancz Poland (Poznan area), which is some 20km from where the body was found. 
In this situation would her death have been registered with the civil authorities, and if so, by whom. It is unknown whether the lady had any relatives.
