Berkshire Burials is in Adobe Reader format. Should you not have Adobe Reader version 7.0 or above installed on your computer you can obtain it free from www.adobe.com.

National Burial Index (NBI)

Only 65 per cent of entries included in Berkshire Burials, 12th Edition appeared, in much abbreviated form, in the Third Edition of the National Burial Index (published in February 2010).

While the NBI is simply an index, for most entries, Berkshire Burials provides extra detail such as status, address, occupation, and information such as cause or place of death, coroner’s inquest and similar data, where recorded in original registers or Bishops’ Transcripts.

This table gives details of the coverage for each parish or place in the Berkshire Burials Twelfth Edition CD in terms of earliest and latest years included.
