Angus Council to digitise burial records

Angus Council is currently digitising the county’s burial records, which exist mainly from the 1850’s onwards, although some go back to the 17th and 18th centuries. Since some of these records are old and fragile, Angus Council has decided that, where possible, they should all be digitised and made available on-line. The information from the burial records will complement that provided by the Registrars through the statutory death records. A timescale for the project is not yet known, though work is already underway.
