Deceased Online adds headstone collections for 18 Fife burial sites

Records for 18 more burial grounds, cemeteries and churchyards in Fife have been added to the Deceased Online headstone collection from Scottish Monumental Inscriptions (SMI)


The records available date back to 1753, feature 39,000 names and comprise photos of headstones together with carefully transcribed digitized inscriptions for easy reading

There are now 51 burial sites in the Fife headstone collection available to search; click here to view the full list

In total, there are now headstone collections from nearly 250 cemeteries, burial grounds and churchyards across Scotland featuring over 300,000 names

The SMI records are included in the main search indexes on the website so that names and dates can be searched for in the usual way

With the main collection of burial records, there are now nearly 1.1 million burial records in Scotland available on Deceased Online.

Continuing the Scottish theme, I also was interested in (and envious of) the events that their National Library gives free to the public to learn more about Scots history.
