St Helier Registrar's death records - U
A page from an early St Helier death register
The Superintendent Registrar's records are all retained in an office in the Royal Square, and some, but not all, of the individual parish records are now in the keeping of Jersey Archive. They have begun work on digitising the St Helier registers, starting with deaths.
Although the majority of deaths from 1842 onwards would have occurred in St Helier and been recorded there, a substantial number happened in other parishes. The St Helier records, therefore, only represent a proportion of the total.
The Archive website provides access to the registers for subscribers to their service. The volumes are indexed, giving the name of the deceased and the date of death, but this has to be known before an individual record can be located. We have combined all the records which have been digitised so far into a single A - Z index. This index, which currently contains 17,000 records, will be expanded as more registers are made available online.
The handwritten registers give the date of death, name, sex, age, address and profession of the deceased, cause of death, doctor and funeral director's names, and any further observations. Later registers add time and place of death, the identity of the person providing the information, cause of death and the date of registration. This can be extremely valuable information for family historians researching ancestors in Jersey.
