Deceased Online

1st phase of Nottingham City records now available on Deceased Online
  • Over 400,000 unique burial and cremation records for Nottingham City Council are now available on www.deceasedonline.com.
  • This is the first phase of this new collection with a second phase due on the website within the next few months. See full details here.
  • The new collection comprises:
    • digital scans of original burial and cremation registers
    • details of all grave occupants in each cemetery
    • maps indicating the section in each cemetery for all graves
    • maps indicating ashes scattering locations in the crematorium
  • Nottingham is one of England's largest cities, strongly linked with textiles during the industrial revolution of the 18th and 19th century. Later commerce and industry featured such famous names as Boots the Chemist and The Raleigh Bicycle Company.
Pictured left: many of the Nottingham registers in the first phase, such as this from 1903 for Bulwell are of excellent quality with a wide range of fields providing useful information.
