Deceased Online is the first central database of statutory burial and cremation registers for the UK and Republic of Ireland -- a unique resource for family history researchers and professional genealogists. Until now, to search these records you had to visit about 3,000 burial authorities and nearly 250 crematoria in the UK alone, each independently holding their own registers, mostly as old fragile books. No official central repository exists. Deceased Online is changing this.
Searching is FREE, and can be restricted as required to country, region, county, or individual burial authority or crematorium. However, once you find a record of possible interest, you do have to pay a fee to read all the details.
Deceased Online has recently added nearly quarter of a million burial and cremation records to the website, www.deceasedonline.com. These are for Cambridge City and Gainsborough in Lincolnshire (both in Eastern England) and for Wembley and Old Willesden cemeteries in the northwestern London borough of Brent. The details for all of these are on the "database coverage" section of the Deceased Online website.
The company also expects to add at least 2 million more burial and cremation records for areas right across the UK over the next 6-9 months.
