The Council covers the areas of Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield in the centre of Hertfordshire within the East of England Region to the north of London. Welwyn Garden City is England’s 2nd garden city, founded in 1920 by Sir Ebenezer Howard. Hatfield by contrast has a long history and was mentioned in the Domesday Book.

Deceased Online has over 200,000 Hertfordshire burial records for 10 cemeteries in the county on the website with some dating back to the early 19th Century.

The two cemeteries managed by the Council with all records on Deceased Online are Hyde Cemetery and Lawn Cemetery and the records available comprise:

  • digital scans of burial registers until 2004; thereafter, electronic records
  • grave details indicating all burials in each grave
  • cemetery section maps indicating the section location of each grave

Users of the Deceased Online website can search the database for free and if and when they find the searched-for subject, they can then choose to pay a modest fee for records which can be downloaded and saved. This means that global researchers are able to access the records 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

Deceased Online is the only specialist website for statutory burial and cremation records from local authorities and other private authorities and companies.
