Funeral Directors Records

We have now completed the transcription of the records of Messrs M. Coghlan of Fareham to the end of 2012 and whose records from 1860 cover the whole of Fareham plus parts of Gosport in the south and up to Southwick and Wickham in the north, and in Portsmouth for Messrs George Andrews, Barrells of Portsmouth, and Dashwood and Denyer. In Chichester we have those for Edward White and Son and in total there are just over 86,000. Other records for the Portsmouth area funeral directors are Dashwood and Denyer, G. Andrews and Sons, various Co-operative branches, Edwards of Waterlooville. We are unable at the moment to have any for funeral directors under the Dignity Banner as despite the Freedom of Information Act, they are the only company that will not co-operate in letting us copy them.

In addition, we have all published records for funeral directors for the whole of Hampshire, Sussex and the Isle of Wight. The include the names of the deceased, date and place of death and burial/cremation, the Funeral Director and other basic details which were published  These records date from 1990.

From 1990, we have complete listings of published funeral records for the whole of the Portsmouth area separately. These give details of name, death date of deceased, age and or date of birth, address where shown, place of burial or cremation and the name and address of the funeral director. There are also a large number that occurred before 1990. In total there are almost 78,000 records in all in this group.

Birth, Marriage and Death Records

We have extensive records of these groups both for this country and abroad (where there is a British conection). These total almost 150,000 and are being added to daily.
