MyHeritage adds United Kingdom, Death Index, 1980-2020

New from MyHeritage, this collection contains an index of 6,351,220 death records from England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. 

According to MyHeritage, records may contain various information of the deceased, including full name, gender, birth date, age at death, death date, and place where the death occurred. 

Checking some known deaths in my family tree in England, I found information on full name, gender, death date, place and postcode sector. Ignore the place which appears to be an administrative centre. Look instead at the postcode sector, Google it and you'll find various sites that describe and map the sector.

There is no indication on the source of the information which is more detailed than that available from the General Register Office website.
