Death Notices in Yorkshire Newspapers

Notes:  The index lists the name of the deceased - date of death - age - place - Newspaper title.  Where the date of death is ommitted, the publication date is shown in brackets.  Where there is a significant gap between death and publication, the publication date is shown in brackets.  Where the age is ommitted, Jeff has substituted (in brackets) the age from FreeBMD - when it could be found.  The place listed is normally the place where the death occured, but sometimes it is the home address.  When just a street address is given, the town is most likely the one in which the newspaper was published.  Where the place of publication is not part of the title, it is included in brackets.  Jeff points out that, as this is all his own, unchecked, work there may be errors and mistranscriptions.

To see the full text of the entry (which can yield many useful details, but often gives no more detail than this index) you would need to see the original newspaper.  Of course, since all transcriptions and indices contain errors, the original should always be consulted if possible.  They are available at the British Library's Newspaper Library in Colindale, North London and at some libraries and archives throughout the North East.
