Each of the burial records has a unique reference comprising the surname of the deceased followed by the date of burial. However, sometimes the records do not show an exact burial date. If this is the case we may show a date range, a month and year, or simply a year. Occasionally there are records for two people with the same surname on the same day. In these instances we add a suffix letter to each reference to distinguish between them. This occurs for example when twins are buried together.
There are a number of different ways in which you can search the burial records. If your search returns one or more results, clicking on an individual record will display the full details of that record. You will see that search results always display in date order with the most recent first.
For guidance on the different ways in which you can search follow these links:
- Using the Search Box a simple search for a surname, or part of a surname, based on text typed in the search box
- Using the filters restricting your search results by applying one or more filters
- Combining search and filter combining different methods – a more selective search
- Using the Archives selecting records by the month and year of the burial date
