Is there any way to get an actual copy online of UK death records. I find that I can access the Index but not the actual record.

depending on the year – 1837 +, you have to pay for them. The GRO has PDF downloads for 6 pounds, but it takes a day or two to receive them. Various county sites might be cheaper.
