National Burial Index (NBI)
About 65 per cent of entries included in Berkshire Burials, 12th Edition appear, in much abbreviated form, in the Third Edition of the National Burial Index (February 2010). Whilst the NBI is just an index, for most entries, Berkshire Burials gives 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.
