Angus, Scotland Burial Records Go Online

By September 19, 2009

Follow me on:

Almot 200,000 Scottish burial records, dating from the 1800s, are now available online through a partnership between Angus Council and Deceased Online. The burial records of all lairs in over 75 cemeteries managed by Angus Council are available for online searching and viewing, along with maps showing the exact location of the graves, and digital images of the headstones (where available).

Deceased Online is a central online database of statutory burial and cremation registers for the UK and Republic of Ireland, and currently includes burial records from several London boroughs, the Kent & Sussex Crematorium and Tunbridge Wells Borough in addition to the newly added records from Angus, Scotland. Searches are free and offer basic information. Additional information associated with the found records, including transcriptions or digital scans of burial and cremation register entries, grave details, photos of graves, and maps of grave locations, is available on a pay-per-view basis.

I have tried a number of deaths to see where the person in buried. I have exact dates when and where died but there is no mention of where they are buried. Dennis Fraser

I work with Deceased Online and I’m responding to Dennis Fraser’s comment of 13 Nov 09. Are you referring to burials within the Angus region of Scotland? If so, we do have all 200,000 burial records that the council holds going back to the mid 17th Century. If you’re looking for burials outside the Angus region, our coverage is as stated in the About.com blog of 19 September. On the website, we clearly state which areas of the UK where we currently have coverage in our ‘Database coverage’ section. We are continually adding new areas and data to the website and send e-bulletins to registered users (this is free of charge) when new data is made available.
