The Burial Records of the Dundee Howff

The Howff File provided here is the culmination of several years' work by volunteers from both the Friends of Dundee City Archives and the Tay Valley Family History Society. The records of The Howff, Dundee's City Cemetery, which are held in the City Archives, were transcribed first on to a card index and then on to a computer datafile. The card index is now held in the Family History Centre.

The computer files have gone through various transformations and this current version is provided in HTML in order to make the data available more widely. The 80,000 records are arranged by initial letter of the person's family name, which has limitations but provides quicker access than through using a single file. The volunteers must be congratulated not only on their devotion, which brought the task to a conclusion, but on the accuracy which the records demonstrate. There are errors, however, but they are largely minor typing mistakes - no discredity to the majority of the volunteers who started with little or no familiarity with a keyboard.

Select one of the following letters to see the surnames in the database beginning with that letter. Please note that these are very large files and could take some time to download depending on the speed of your internet connection.
