Death and Taxes: Understanding the UK Death Duty Registers

Zoom talk
One of family history’s best kept secrets – records of UK death duty payments

Many of us have found our ancestors’ wills and know that they can often give us really valuable information about our family. But very few of us have thought about looking at related records for death duties. For more than 100 years, from 1796 to 1903, the UK Inland Revenue maintained a series of registers recording these payments. The National Archives now hold the registers, waiting for us to search them.

In this talk, Dave Annal tells us all about them. He covers what’s in the surviving records. Then he describes how to use them to uncover fascinating facts about the lives and times of our 19th century ancestors.

You can also join Dave for a Question and Answer session after the talk.

There are no special entry requirements and you do not need to be a Member of the Society of Genealogists. Expect a friendly atmosphere, an expert speakerand lots of detail.
Live 1-hour Zoom talk runs from 10.30 to 11.30 (UK time) and costs £10.00. For Members of the Society of Genealogists, a discounted price of £5.00 is available.
