Belfast City Council's burial records site redesign

Belfast City Council has redesigned its burial site interface, and given it a new address at The site includes searchable burial records transcriptions for the City Cemetery, Roselawn Cemetery and Dundonald Cemetery. Searches are free, but for records older than 75 years you can purchase the actual burial records for £1.50, which often includes more details than a death certificate.

I'll be honest, I'm of the school that thinks if it isn't broken, don't fix it! This new version does seem to have enlarged everything, there seems to be a bit more navigation required to move around it, but the core functionality is still the same, which is the key thing. (I'm assuming they are going for the tablet crowd, the page is a lot more vertical!)

Happy hunting!
