The National Burial Index (NBI) is a fully searchable database of burial entries recorded in English and Welsh registers - Parish, nonconformist, Roman Catholic, Quaker and cemetery registers. Coverage is incomplete, but over 18.4 million records are indexed in this edition, covering the years 1538-2008.
Each entry provides surname, forname(s), date of burial, age (where given), the parish or cemetery where the event was recorded, whether the date is checked and the family history society, group or individual who extracted the record.
In response to previous requests the disc is now a compressed database that must be unpacked onto your hard drive before use. This may be inconvenient for customers who have old computers where space may be running low. In these cases we recommend using a USB Memory Stick or other external storage device. Further instructions can be provided if required.WARNING

You'll need a PC with at least 2.8Gbytes of free disk space, a CD or DVD drive, and running Windows 8 / 7 / Vista / XP. Either the 32 or 64 bit versions of any of these operating systems are supported. The search program & all of the data are installed on your hard drive, but the original CD is still needed in your CD/DVD drive each time you start the search program.WARNING FOR APPLE MAC USERS:
The NBI Third Edition is also capable of running on an Apple Mac computer using Apples Bootcamp, Microsoft Parallels or VMware's Fusion 4 Windows Emulation Packages. All the above require a licensed copy of Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 to be mounted on the computer prior to loading up the NBI3 program. You will also need a disc drive so this may not be suitable for a modern MAC computer.
