Best use Cemetery search of actual burial registers if you have death dates

In my opinion the marriage residence is not always the place of birth. Never forget Workhouse and overseers accounts records of birth

It is a great online resource Dobfarm, I'm sure it will be very useful to Rootschatters. I have used it before and found the burial register I was looking for.

In case it helps anyone searching it is worth noting that some cemeteries are not searchable by the name of the deceased so a trawl through the burial registers is the only way. To see the cemeteries that are searchable by name click on the word (open) underneath the Search by Name section, then click (show available). This will bring up the list.

The cemetery I was looking at was not searchable by name, but I was fortunate enough to know when and where she was buried from family documents which helped.

Good luck to anyone searching.
