67,000 Aberdeen and Edinburgh records added at deceasedonline.com

Deceasedonline.com has been very quiet over the summer. The notice below marks, if not their resurrection, then their reinvigoration with news of some new records.

  • Over 22,000 burial records dating back to 1824 are from three Aberdeen City cemeteries; Nigg, Trinity and St Nicholas Kirkyard. The records are in the form of scans of burial registers, dues registers and burial indexes (full details are in the database coverage section on the website).
  • Register scans for a further 45,000 cremations from Warriston Crematorium in Edinburgh are also now available, covering the period 1991 to 2009. This brings the total number of records on Deceased Online for Warriston Crematorium to nearly 225,000, covering the period 1937 to 2009.
The best news for me and my search for some of my London ancestors was at end of the notice; information that data from a sixth London Council, with hundreds of thousands of records, are currently in preparation for London and other areas across the whole of the UK.
