National Burial Index


The Rotherham section of the National Burial Index now contains more than 195,000 entries. All this is thanks to the small team of dedicated volunteers who are prepared to give up some of their spare time to assist with the project. However, if you are interested in helping with this project you are more than welcome.  The work involves the transcribing and checking of records in the archives at Rotherham and Sheffield.

The Rotherham indexes can be searched and the result of the search may be purchased. At the society meetings, members and visitors can request a search of the indexes by the NBI co-ordinator. The results of this free search will appear on screen for your perusal. If you require the results printing off the fee is £2.00 per surname (£4.00 for non-members) per five A4 sheets (typically there are 16 entries per sheet). This service is also available by mail (add £1.00) or Email (add 50p) from Co-ordinator, please use our "Contact us" form.

Most of these entries are available on disc, see under Shop – Burial Indexes
