Default Edinburgh Burials and Cremations - deceased online

New records added to Deceased online http://www.deceasedonline.com/

From their newsletter -

"Edinburgh: 300,000+ burial and cremation
records added to Deceased Online

Nearly 1 million Scottish burial and cremation records now available

313,000 records for Edinburgh's Seafield Cemetery and Crematorium and for Warriston Crematorium are now on www.deceasedonline.com.
Nearly 39,000 burial records dating from 1888 to the present day for Seafield Cemetery feature scans of mortality registers (with many of them including details of the type of hearse used!).
Over 49,500 records from 1939 for Seafield Crematorium are available as scans of cremation register pages.
Records for Warriston Crematorium, numbering nearly 225,000 and dating back to 1929, are available as scans of cremation registers. Please note: records up to 1991 are immediately available - records after this date are still being uploaded but will be available shortly.
The combined Edinburgh dataset of 313,000 means that the total Deceased Online database for Scotland now numbers just under 1 million burial and cremation records.
The Deceased Online team will be in Edinburgh on Saturday 25th June meeting delegates at the Scottish Association of Family Histories (SAFHS) national conference. They will be demonstrating the wide range of records that Deceased Online has for areas throughout Scotland including register scans, grave details, photographs of memorials with searchable inscriptions, and cemetery maps.

Conference details are at: http://www.safhs.org.uk/conference.asp. "

Default New Scottish Records being added

Latest newsletter:-





Records for 50 Scottish burial sites
being added
First records online now!

www.deceasedonline.com is uploading tens of thousands of headstone and memorial transcriptions from over 50 burial grounds and cemeteries across Scotland over the next few weeks
Data for the first 15+ burial grounds mostly in the Highlands region are immediately available with records for Dundee, Edinburgh, Lanarkshire, the Lothians, Perth and other areas to be added shortly
Users can search these records specifically by using advanced search, selecting collections. They can then either purchase access to a whole cemetery/churchyard collection or, for a reduced fee, just the subset of headstone images with inscriptions containing specific surnames
Useful tip: once you have purchased a collection or subset there is the facility to search the collection for anything. For example, you can search for such words as 'drowned' or 'killed' and all relevant references from memorial inscriptions will be highlighted.
The records date back to the 17th century with many from remote burial sites. See full details in the database coverage section at www.deceasedonline.com


Come and meet us at Who Do You Think You Are Live,
24-26 February 2012



Once again, Deceased Online will be exhibiting at the UK's leading genealogy and family history event, Who Do You Think You Are Live, at London Olympia, 24-26 February.

East London's West Ham Cemetery, with all 180,000+ records now available, is the latest major London cemetery on www.deceasedonline.com
The historic cemetery, dating from 1857, was one of the first publicly-owned urban cemeteries to open in London following the Burial Act of 1852. It features some fascinating graves and memorials.
Data comprises computerised records, a searchable index, details of all occupants in each grave and cemetery section maps indicating grave locations. See database coverage section on website for full details.
West Ham is the only cemetery managed by Newham Council which joins a growing list of local authorities to have added their data to Deceased Online. The London database now comprises more than 1.5 million burial and cremation records with many more to come soon.

Further details:

"London Borough of Newham, West Ham Cemetery, Cemetery Road, Forest Gate, London, E7 9DG.

Approximately 180,000 burial records are available for the London Borough of Newham, West Ham Cemetery, East London.

The data available comprise computerised index records, details of graves including names of all those buried in each grave, and cemetery section maps to locate graves.

Note that only the index records are available, and not the full burial register records, as regrettably these were irrecoverably damaged due to flooding."

Thank you for that update.

I have just found 4 of OH's direct ancesters in a family plot complete with burial dates and details of the grave.

His grandparents buried both sets of their parents in the same grave!

I haven't told him yet he is at the Gym I am now wondering if it has a headstone instact I would think so. I don't know what state West Ham cemetary is in these days.

I was a bit surprised though that both sets of Great Grandparents are in the same grave.
