Scottish burial and cremation records available

 There are now nearly 1 million Scottish burial and cremation records available:
a.  313,000 records for Edinburgh’s Seafield Cemetery and Crematorium and for Warriston Crematorium are now on
b.  Nearly 39,000 burial records dating from 1888 to the present day for Seafield Cemetery feature scans of mortality registers (with many of them including details of the type of hearse used!).
c.  Over 49,500 records from 1939 for Seafield Crematorium are available as scans of cremation register pages.
d.  Records for Warriston Crematorium, numbering nearly 225,000 and dating back to 1929, are available as scans of cremation registers. Please note: records up to 1991 are immediately available – records after this date are still being uploaded but will be available shortly.
e.  The combined Edinburgh dataset of 313,000 means that the total Deceased Online database for Scotland now numbers just under 1 million burial and cremation records.
