    To use the search facility you need a surname, or part of a surname. You can narrow your results by providing a forename(s), initial or year of death or burial.

    • full name
    • age
    • last place of residence
    • sex
    • date of birth
    • date of burial

    • type of burial, for example, standard earth burial or cremation.
