Question: Finding out about registered deaths and burials in Liverpool, England!?
Most of my father's family died when he was a young man, before I was born!. Now he is also deceased so I can't find out from him details of my grandparent's deaths and where their grave is located!.

UK answer!.
As both the people in your question are no longer alive it would be okay for you to give their names on the forum and let someone find the Information for you, although the information about their burial wont be included on the death certificate, you should be able to find it quite easily if you phone around the cemeteries and give the date of death and their names they will have the burial details and grave numbers if they are buried at that cemetery!.
This is where you can apply on line for the certificates,

When beginning to research your family history you need to collect as much information as you can from any living relatives, ie aunts, uncles, cousins etc as well as those you mention!. Make sure you have copies of as many birth, death, marriage certificates as you can !.

If you cannot get those then if you know dates of birth or wedding anniversaries and places where they happened you can work back from those!.

As you are researching Liverpool you will be able to use the census returns from 1851-1911!.

Without a name it is difficult to help further, email me if you like!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I'd go to ancestry!.com and look in its free BMD(BirthsMarriagesDeaths) database and start there!. Assuming your grandparents didn't have very common names such as John Smith you should be able to trace them down!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
