There is a record of a Charles Marklew being buried in Handsworth Cemetery April 1922

It costs a very expensive 20 to view the actual burial record!!


That is a LOT. Surely if the pricing was more reasonable it would increase the income?  I do realise that there is a cost for digitising and indexing registers such as these, but pricing outside of the budget of most researchers will probably mean the actual number of downloads is very small.
