Two Peterhead cemeteries and a small Aberdeen City graveyard have been added to a growing Scottish burial database.
Deceased Online has added to its Scottish burial database:
- Nearly 19,000 records commencing 1869 for Constitution Hill Cemetery in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire. The records include digital scans of mortality registers, which are rich in detail and include full names, designations of heads of families, occupations, causes of death, places of death, addresses, ages and grave references.
- Over 16,000 records, dating back to 1615, for a second Peterhead cemetery, St Peter’s Churchyard, are currently being worked on and will be completed and uploaded shortly.
- The database for the City of Aberdeen has also been increased with the addition of nearly 4,500 records for the small John Knox graveyard. The records are for the period 1838 to 1894 and have been transcribed from grave diggers’ registers written in broad Scots and including various spelling inconsistencies.
