The National Burial Index (NBI) is a database that is fully searchable for burial entries recorded in English and Welsh registers - Parish, nonconformist, Roman Catholic, Quaker and cemetery registers. Coverage is incomplete, but over 18.4 million records are indexed in this edition, covering the years 1538-2008.
These burial records are taken from Anglican parish, non-conformist, Quaker, Roman Catholic and cemetery burial registers throughout England & Wales. The database on CD is fully searchable and results can be printed out or exported.
Each entry provides surname, forename(s), date of burial, age (where given), the parish or cemetery where the event was recorded, whether the date is checked and the family history society, group or individual who extracted the record.
