Dorset DCI covers deaths registered in the historic county of Dorset from 1837 to 1875. Entries are arranged alphabetically by surname:


A – C

D – G

H – K

L – N

O – T

U – Z


Alternatively the search facility allows you to search the site by name of the deceased, occupation, place of death, cause of death and by details of the ‘informant’ – the person who reported the death to the local registrar.
