Last night, my partner and I watched The Notebook on (UK) Netflix.

At the end of the film, Noah climbs into Allie's bed, where they hold hands and talk about miracles. Cut to birds flying over a lake, followed by the credits. There is no clear indication of their deaths.

However, we both distinctly remember, from previous viewings, an additional scene, in which the couple is discovered, both deceased, the following morning. This is borne out by the Wikipedia plot summary, which ends:

While sleeping, both Noah and Allie pass away and a nurse discovers them in the morning.

Are there two different versions of the film's ending?

If so, how did these come about? Were the two endings perhaps the result of differing censorship requirements in different markets, a special director's cut edition featuring previously unused footage, or simply heavy-handed editing by Netflix for some reason?
