Simply enter all or part of a surname/family name/last name and then choose if what you have entered is the "exact name", "starts with" or "contains" the data you have entered, then click the search button. There is no need to enter any first name(s).
The "name" must be a *VALID* name. It must not contain numbers or non alphabet characters except the ' as used in names like "O'Neil".
For example, if you are unsure if the name you need is spelt "McDonald" or "MacDonald" enter "donald" and choose "contains" and you will be returned all details for all interments that have a surname/family name/last name that has the word "donald" in it somewhere. That may mean "Donaldson" or similar.
Similarly, if you are unsure if the name you are looking for is "Smith", or "Smithson" enter "smith", choose "starts with" and click the search button. You may also get "Smithers" or similar.
