FindMyPast updates recent Northern Ireland deaths collection

FindMyPast has created a distinct record-set – Northern Ireland Deaths 1998-2020 – for its collection of recent Northern Ireland deaths, and uploaded an additional 5,000 records to it. The additions bring to 92,600 the total of records in the collection.

They have been sourced from Wilmington Millennium, a Yorkshire-based company that gathers names and other personal data of deceased individuals and uses it to help insurance, security and other businesses to prevent identity fraud and similar scams. The collected data comes from a variety of non-GRONI sources so the information in each record varies, but it will usually provide full name, birth and death dates, death location and a postcode of residence for each deceased person.

A similar collection of non-GRO records covering England and Wales Deaths, 2007-2020 has also been created in FindMyPast's database. Some 353,000 recent death records have been added to it, bringing the collection total to 3,274,094 records.
