I think that Friar Lawrence, Friar John, and Lord Capulet are to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Friar Laurence is the pastor that marries Romeo and Juliet. He plays the role of a person that Romeo and Juliet can confide in. He is not on either side, the Montagues, nor the Capulets. Friar John is Laurence’s brother, who doesn’t play much of a role in till the end of the story. Friar Laurence gives the note for Romeo to Friar John, and tells him to bring the note to Romeo in Mantua. Lord Capulet is Juliet’s biological father, who does not play much of a father in Juliet’s life. I believe that they all three are to blame in the deaths of both Juliet, and also Romeo.
