British Abroad, British Islands : Classification : Deaths

Burial, cremations and death indexes are the records that help you establish the date of death of an individual. Prior to the start of civil registration there were only parish records. For dates after the start of civil registration it is often worth tracking down both a death registration and the burial record as they both contain useful information.
