The data available on microfilm is for civil registers collected by 
churches on behalf of the government.  Prior to the establishment of a 
Lutheran Church, they would have had to register at the nearest Catholic 

This would probably be the parish centre in Pultusk but you may have to 
consider the smaller nearby churches of Obryte, Sadykierz-Parcele, or Pniewo.

The above would be for pre1843 info.  For death records after that, I 
cannot explain why they would be missing - except that if recorded in a 
separate book, the entire book might be missing in which case you obviously 
cannot find the records no matter what parish you look in.  Perhaps someone 
else has further insight on this specific situation.
