Title: how to find a recent death
Post by: bramble9 on Saturday 01 June 13 13:32 BST (UK)
Hi everyone,

Can anyone advise how I can look-up a recent UK death? Obviously Ancestry only goes up to 2005 and I want to look up between 2012-2013 - is there anyway I can do this?

Thanks!

2012-2013 death registers are not online.  You might want to search the obituaries in the newspaper for the area the death occurred.

No national BMD indexes for any date from 2006 are available on-line. The only place you will find such indexes are at

Birmingham Central Library
Bridgend Reference and Information Library
The British Library
City of Westminster Archives Centre
Newcastle City Library
Manchester City Library
Plymouth Central Library
Certain Local Authorities have later indexes on line.

Even then there is a delay of several months before these institutions get their copies ie unlikely any will currently have 2013
