Aberdeen and North East Scotland Family History Society
have a complete pre 1855 Burial Index for Aberdeen,
Aberdeenshire and Kincardineshire. This is essentially
a collation of all the death entries appearing in Old
There were significant differences between parishes in
terms of their policies towards recording deaths. In
general terms records are very poor, but as you get nearer
to the commencement of civil registration (1855) there is
a general improvement.
In order to get access to the index you will need to either
join ANESFHS or get some kind member to do a look-up for you.
It is well worth checking out all known siblings because if
any one of them survived beyond 1855 you can then get the
parent information you are looking for from Scots Origins
I too am interested in Mortcloth Records. Is the LDS FHC
the only place where these records can be accessed.
