Many burials at Toxteth Park Cemetery Liverpool are now online and searchable at http://www.toxtethparkcemetery.co.uk It gives lots of info, ie name, address, age, date of burial and others in the same grave. The site is still a work in process so others will be added.

I don't think this is on here: I have just been scrolling to check so hope I have not duplicated.

These are both the same site:
http://www.familyresearcher.co.uk/glossary/Dictionary-of-Old-Occupations-Index.html or

http://www.familyresearcher.co.uk/Coventry-At-War/Coventry-At-War.html

As well as the dictionary of occupations which is excellent, it has
Free 1841 - 1891 census for Cornwall and quite a few guidlines for people.

http://www.marriage-locator.co.uk/


This website is to find where marriages took place.

You will need GRO index reference.

The project is fairly recent, so at the moment it works best for London's East End, particlarly Stepney,Mile End,St George in the East, Whitechaple and Shoreditch.
Good Luck.

Ive 4 generations of my Father's side in my tree.
He was Irish,co.Antrim.
Having problems finding their death dates
Irish geanology isnt eay.
The few sites Ive found want you to put the date in.
But it's the death dates I'm looking for.
Sorry if I'm addressing this problem on the wrong thread.
