NATIONAL BURIAL INDEX Third Edition
The National Burial Index (NBI) is a database of entries recorded in English and Welsh burials registers - parish, nonconformist, Roman Catholic, Quaker and cemetery.
Coverage is incomplete, but over 18.4 million records are included in this edition, covering 1538-2008. The NBI also incorporates those records previously published of which many have since been checked and corrected. Millions of these records will not be found on any website.
Information for each individual includes:
- Forename(s) and surname
- date of burial
- age (where given, generally post-1813)
- details of place where the event was recorded; pre-1832 county definitions are used
- the recording society, group or individual
No monumental inscriptions or death registrations are included.
You'll need a PC running Windows 7 / Vista / XP (32 or 64 bit), with at least 2.8Gbytes of free disk space and a CD or DVD drive. Also works on Windows 10.
The NBI Third Edition is now capable of running on an Apple Mac computer using Apples Bootcamp, Microsoft Parallels or VMware's Fusion 4 Windows Emulation Packages. All the above require a licensed copy of Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 to be mounted on the computer prior to loading up the NBI3 program.
