National Burial Index

The Society has so far contributed 31,968 records to the National Burial Index (NBI) project, which is co-ordinated by the Federation of Family History Societies (FFHS).

Three editions of the Index have now been published by the FFHS on CD-Rom, the Third Edition in March 2010. For further details about the project and how to obtain a copy, see www.ffhs.org.uk/projects/nbi/nbi-overview.php

For each of the burials contributed to the NBI by the Society, you can obtain further information as follows:
