Parish Registers (Announce)

by admin ⌂, Forest of Dean, Wednesday, January 10, 2018, 16:46 (642 days ago)

We have today linked the search engine to an updated database which includes Baptisms up to 31 December 1927, Marriages up to 31 December 1947 and following a change in policy ALL Burials. We have added the Registers for Elmore and over the past months we have conducted an audit of the database which has resulted in additional entries.

Thankyou Admin for this excellent news, and for all the team's hard work to make this happen. I'm particularly pleased to see that all the burials are now online.

Thanks and best wishes to you all, Jeff.

Record ID 164584, Entry No 297 for FRANCIS MATTHEWS, burial at Ledbury Parish Church 10 Nov 1884 - this record gives his address as Horse Shoe (?) - this is the Horse Shoe Inn or public house in the Homend, Ledbury, where he had been the landlord for many years. It is still very much in business today.

See John Eisel and Ron Shoesmith's book 'The Pubs of Bromyard Ledbury & East Herefordshire', logaston Press, 2003, page 201.

Hello Admin,

Can you help me please?
Can you tell me how to find "All Burials" on the site please, I am not very good at doing things on the computer so please if you can make it easy.

Thank you.

I'm not Admin but maybe this will help...

Go to Resources/Parish Records and click on Search Forest of Dean Parish Records.

Put a % in the surname field and select Burial as the event type.

Click Search.

You'll get over 350000 results. Are you sure that's what you want?
