Metcalfe Deaths and Burials

The Metcalfe Deaths & Burials Database is made up of transcripts of the Official UK Deaths Index from 1837-2000, as well as sources overseas and miscellaneous entries outside these dates. The Metcalfe Society extends our thanks to all those members who have contributed to this database over the years, as well as extending an invitation to current members to add to this project any deaths that are not currently listed.

Guidance on Searching the Database

To search the database, type your search details into any of the fields, and then click 'Search'. The more details you enter, the less records you will find. If you cannot find what you are looking for, widen your search by typing in fewer fields.

How to Use the 'Wildcard'

Use the wildcard '*' to ensure you get the best possible match from the database. For example, when searching on Forename:

  • Norah will return those records which have Norah AND NO OTHER NAME.
  • Norah* will return records where Norah is the first name followed by ANY OTHER NAME.
  • *Eveline* will return records where Eveline appears as a FIRST OR MIDDLE NAME.

You must be logged in to access the search options.
