Burial Index Enquiry Service
This service covers the burial registers we have transcribed for the National Burials Index (NBI), and a number of burial registers which have been transcribed since. Details of the parishes included in the most recent NBI can be found on the NBI Coverage page for Monmouthshire (marked “GWNT”) on the FFHS website.
The fee for this service is £2 per surname [including variations specified by the enquirer] per parish, or £5 for a blanket search of all parishes. Please note this is an on-going project and not all parishes and dates are included at this time. If you would like an initial check to see if the area you are interested in is included in the index then email email@example.com
If you would like a search to be made, please write to the Gwent FHS Secretary:
Mrs Nicola Thomas, 11 Rosser Street, Waunfelin, PONTYPOOL, Gwent, NP4 6EA
…with details of the surname concerned and enclosing a cheque for the appropriate fee. This cheque must be made payable to “Gwent F.H.S.”, in £ (pounds sterling, or GBP) and drawn on a UK Bank. If the details are to posted within the UK, you must enclose a s.a.e. (at least 5″x9″) with your remittance. If the details are to be posted overseas, instead of a s.a.e., include your postal address and add to the amount remitted another £3.50 for air mail.
