The following announcement was written by Deceased Online:
Following the recent uploading of over 800,000 records for the UK’s largest cemetery onto www.deceasedonline.com, the UK’s only portal for statutory burial and cremation records, the company has now added 70,000 burial records for two areas in the county of Hertfordshire.
Located almost directly north of London and bounded to the south by the M25 motorway, Broxbourne Borough Council includes the towns of Cheshunt, Waltham Cross, Hoddesdon and Broxbourne. Deceased Online has uploaded 40,000 burial records for the award-winning Cheshunt Cemetery (1855-2003, UK Cemetery of the Year 2005) and Ware Road Cemetery, Hoddesdon (1883-2003).
The Borough of Dacorum is in West Hertfordshire comprising the main towns of Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted and Tring plus a number of large and small villages. Deceased Online now incorporates 30,000 records across four cemeteries which are: Heath Lane Cemetery (1878-2010) and Woodwells Cemetery (1960-2010) in Hemel Hempstead; Tring Cemetery (1894-2010); and Kingshill Cemetery, Berkhamsted (1947-2010).
Records for the two areas include digital scans of burial registers (as available) and details of grave occupants so that users of Deceased Online can access a good range of data.
Records for Broxbourne Borough Council also include digital photographs of graves and memorials which currently comprise nearly 6,000 and eventually around 30% of all graves and memorials will include photos linked to the other records data. These will be added over the next few weeks.
A major advantage with Deceased Online is that users need not know the cemetery, town, city, county or local authority area where the person they are looking for was buried or cremated. Deceased Online enables UK-wide searching by name with a variety of search tools and filters to enable users to easily locate the subject of their search.
Deceased Online has records for other councils across the UK on its website including five London authorities, three (shortly to be four) Scottish councils and various other English councils. Data for many more areas is due to be added over the next few months.
