More than 100,000 Aberdeen burial records have been made available online.
Deceased Online, the UK’s only website dedicated to statutory burial and cremation records, has increased its database with the addition of a further 105,000 burial records for Aberdeen City. The site already has nearly 25,000 burial records for Scotland’s third largest city so this will increase the data size to almost 130,000.
The new data is for St Peter’s Cemetery and Churchyard for the period 1830 – 1951 and comprises scans of the original burial registers and details on occupants of graves. The data represents approximately 70% of all burials within the Cemetery and Churchyard for this period and others will be added over the next few months. Further records before 1830 are to be included on Deceased Online later this year.
The existing records for Aberdeen City on the site are for Grove Cemetery, Nellfield Cemetery, Old Machar Churchyard and St Clement’s Churchyard. Eventually there will be nearly 200,000 burial records for Aberdeen City on the website and further areas of Scotland will also be added during this year.
