Deceased Online update

From Deceased Online (www.deceasedonline.com):

Approximately 32,000 burial records and 142,000 cremation records for the English City of Cambridge have now been published on www.deceasedonline.com. Register scans are available for burials at Newmarket Road Cemetery between 1903 and 2005, and cremations at Cambridge City Crematorium between 1938 and 1996, with computerised records for both after these dates. You can read about the data in more depth at www.deceasedonline.com.

Over the next few months, a wealth of burial and cremation data from towns in the English counties of Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire, Warwickshire, Shropshire and Devon, and at least one Scottish county, will be uploaded to Deceased Online.

And the UK's biggest cemetery (by burials) is coming to
www.deceasedonline.com very soon. We can't tell you any more now, but make sure you and your friends are registered on the website to receive emails, then you'll know the moment any new data is published on Deceased Online. We hope to have all the records, scans and maps for this cemetery online by the end of the summer.

The Deceased Online team are doing a great job, and keep an eye out for Discover my Past England issue 5, where I interview Richard Gray, its Head of Marketing. I have some idea of what is to come, particularly on the Scottish front, but all I'll say for now is - it will be worth the wait!

To find out more about the site, visit the website or meet the team at this weekend's Who Do You Think You Are? Live event on stand 813.
