Date of death?
« on: March 25, 2018, 06:12:02 PM »
Probably a silly question but I'll ask anyway.
Is it possible to find a death date of someone with only having a birth date? :-\

No.

Date of birth was only recorded from the 1970s. Prior to that it was just the age (as given by the informant, which obviously could often be significantly wrong). But there's no way of searching for a given date of birth on a post 1970s death cert.

Sorry, but I've been meaning to get back to you regarding your reply.

Is it possible or where is it possible to do a detailed search on deaths say from around the 1960's to around 1970's ?
I guess I'm clutching at straws really..

Thank you ms, do you have any idea how purchasing credits work?
For example, would one credit equal one search, what is the normal purchase?
Thanks

     The GRONI on-line system only allows you to search for deaths that are over 50 years old. So deaths before 15th May 1968. If you want to search for deaths after that, you need to go to GRONI or PRONI in Belfast. Those are the only 2 locations where you can search for more recent deaths.
