The Tombstones & Burials Index

The burials section is being added to an online database, accessible by SFHG members using the username and password available by completing this form. The online database is here.


The Index includes records of inscriptions on tombstones, plaques, and memorials, together with burials. At the last count the computer database held about 186,000 monumental inscriptions, a quarter with photographs, and over 800,000 burials. The database provides full details of the inscription on the tombstone, any peculiarities of the tombstone, its location within the churchyard, the churchyard name and location.

Lists of churchyards and surnames in the MI database, and of surnames in the collection of MI photographs, are available using the links below.
