Deceased Online - new Angus records go online

A welcome news update from our friends at Deceased Online:

New Angus data on Deceased Online

We're delighted to advise you that a further 73,500 burial records have just been added for the Angus region to the Deceased Online website. If you're interested in researching this region, the details are as follows:-

• Arbroath Eastern and Western Cemeteries: 40,000 new records; 1867 - 2003
• Brechin Cemetery: over 18,000 new records; 1857 - 2007
• Sleepyhillock Cemetery: over 13,000 new records; 1895 - 2007
• Newmonthill Cemetery: nearly 2,000 records added for the period 1985 - 2003

We're also expecting nearly 80,000 more records for the region, including those for Brechin Cathedral, to be added within the next two months or so and we'll bulletin you again to let you know as and when this happens.

In other areas, we have more records due to come on line from both existing and new councils, cemeteries and crematoria in the near future.

Make sure you visit regularly to check the latest records.

Maps now show the exact location of graves

We're delighted to announce that grave locations for nearly 30,000 burials can now be viewed and printed from cemetery maps. This means that for these burial records you can find the exact location of the grave (or lair). So far, these include all records for Alperton Cemetery in the London Borough of Brent, and approximately 25,000 records within Kirriemuir and Newmonthill cemeteries in the Scottish Angus region.

When the maps are available for a burial, this is clearly indicated on the burial register summary. New maps are being added continually, so watch this space!
