    Shame about the cost, but now that Find A Grave have changed format this could be useful.

    I tried searching a Birmingham burial the other day on Find A Grave and I could not get it set to search Birmingham, England, only Birmingham cemeteries in the States. It's most disappointing. It was such an easy site to search in the old format.

    The only time I ever saw Joe Walsh was in Birmingham, England. I remember him saying "We have a Birmingham back home, it's a much nicer place"

    Hello Geoff

    should be useful. I am going to run a few WW2 names through it this evening.

    Cheers

    Got a Brookwood 1939-45 casualty so a good resource

    Have either of you downloaded the info? I'd be curious to see the information provided. Is it just plot number and section? Or does it give details of inscription or plot owner?

    The 2 pages that I have are the original full burial register pages. The handy info is home address & place of death. No inscription details.

    Thanks for the info Chris. I haven't heard back from the cemetery in question. Think I'll take the plunge and download the record.

    It was a toss up between ordering the £6 PDF version of the death cert, but GRO's PDF pilot only does death certs up to 1957 at the moment and burial is 1967. I now have the date of birth from the '39 ID register thanks to Harkness, so I'll know hopefully from the burial record if it's the right person. Thanks again.

    Sorry, got another question before I download one of these records this week. Chris stated the full page from the register is available. Does this reveal all the occupants of the grave?

    No to that. Both registers I have run in date order

    Thanks once again Chris. Some records here in Scotland occasionally have all the grave occupiers listed. I'm going to opened the record tomorrow anyway to see if I can confirm a suspicion.
