Search Newspaper Reports
  • This table holds Obituaries, Funeral accounts, Death and Inquest reports published in Cornish newspapers, where the event took place in Cornwall or within the UK and the individual is said to be from Cornwall.

  • In the case of Inquests held in Cornwall, the parish named is where the Inquest was held and therefore not necessarily the parish of origin. Hencewhen you are searching it may be better to leave the parish field blank.

  • The wildcard (%) is applied by default to the right hand side of some search terms. To obtain more results, keep your search terms to a minimum e.g. to find all variations for Stephen, search for 'St' in the forename field.
  • Parish names should be entered as in other searches e.g. 'Juliot, St.' rather than 'St Juliot' but, as explained above, 'Jul' would be sufficient
  • The transcriptions have been directly linked to these records and can be displayed by clicking on the 'click here for full text' link. If this doesn't work or the incorrect transcription is displayed then please report the problem!
  • If there is a transcription available then  there will be a clickable link displayed on the 'more' page where it says 'click here for full text'
 Search for exact surname (no wildcard)  ?
Search for exact surname: By default the search facility adds a wildcard (%) to the end of the surname to return more results. If you want to search for an exact surname, tick this box and the wildcard search will be disabled.
 Include similar surnames  ?
Include Similar Surnames: Ticking this option will search for any surnames that have a similar sounding name to your search, based on the Soundex algorithm. This only works if the surname you've entered is more than 2 characters. It may also slow down your search.
 Include nearby parishes  ?
Include Nearby Parishes: Ticking this option will include any parishes that are deemed to be near to the one you're searching for. This will only work if you've specified the exact parish. It will also only work if there are any parishes registered as near to the one you're searching for.
