Due to improved and updated database records, grave numbers are now written in a new format, you can convert your grave number by following the below instructions:

  1. The ‘number’ part of your grave number needs to be four digits, therefore please add zeros before your number part to make 4 digits.
  2. If there is an ‘X’ at the end of your grave number now needs to be placed at the front of the grave number
  3. Ensure there are no spaces in the whole grave number

example: grave number ABC12X would now be: XABC0012
