In the database you'll find records containing details from the burial registers. These can include full name, age, dates of death and burial, cause of death, names of kin, occupation and details of the burial. The information varies from register to register, so not all details will appear in all the records.

  • Tick the alternative names box to bring up variant spellings of the name you're searching for.

Names with question marks denote the best we can make out from illegible names in the register itself.
