Antrim and Newtownabbey Council's new free burials database

Thanks to Claire Santry for flagging up that the new free burials database from Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council is finally now live (in test phase) at https://antrimandnewtownabbey.gov.uk/residents/cemeteries/. I tweeted just over a month ago that I was looking forward to this being released, following an article in the Newtownabbey Times published on February 5th (See https://www.newtownabbeytoday.co.uk/news/politics/council/online-burial-search-initiative-antrim-and-newtownabbey-council-3125265).

The cemeteries included are in the following areas:

  • Antrim
  • Ballyclare
  • Belmont         
  • Carnmoney (Main and East)
  • Crumlin
  • Mallusk
  • Sixmile
  • Rashee Cemetery
  • Umgall

Burial grounds not included:

  • Cranfield
  • Drummaul
  • Kilbride
  • Milltown
  • Muckamore
  • Templepatrick

Let's just say I may not get a lot of work done today! (I have lots of folk in Carnmoney!)
