The National Burial Index (NBI) has been published on CDROM by the Federation of Family History Societies. The Birmingham & Midland Society for Genealogy & Heraldry has contributed indexes for the three counties that it covers (Warwickshire, Worcestershire & Staffordshire). However, while there are over 450,000 records for Worcestershire and Warwickshire in the first edition of the NBI, the majority of Staffordshire records were not available at the time of publication. There are 17,967 Staffordshire records in the first edition mainly relating to four parishes.
The second edition of the NBI has now been published and includes 791,000 records for Staffordshire. An index of parish coverage will appear here in due course.
