Those vouchers are ideal for those who only want to do a few look ups.  DO t&c's do not allow you to do them for other people. 

D.O say -
The basic annual subscription, now called 'Silver', will remain at 89. However, we have introduced a limit of 450 record views for this subscription.   

Wouldn't that be a better option if you are prepared to spend that sort of money. The sub is for 12 months how long are the vouchers valid for.

Yes, you are quite right, the silver subscription is better value than buying 50 worth of vouchers so the Xmas Special Offer of buy one voucher get one free will appeal to those who expect to have less usage.

I don't see anything on their email about the offer that says you have to by 50-worth. The example they give shows someone buying just one, but perhaps it's in the small print somewhere.

The vouchers expire after 6 months but old ones get extended of you buy more within that period.

The annual sub doesn't cover maps or photo collections, for which you still need vouchers.

On the subject of maps, be aware that most of the ones that have been passed to me "to help you find the grave" are just nicely-redrawn versions of the section maps usually free online, from the office, or on a noticeboard at the gate and do NOT show the positions of individual graves. There was one exception that might have come from DO as it used the same colour scheme, but even that omitted unmarked ones in a common graves area.

I think Gossyplum has now changed their original post from suggesting a 50 purchase  :)

Thanks. I find Deceased Online useful at times, so I've stocked up using this offer. As an occasional user I wouldn't have known about it otherwise.
