Coffin plates often contain birth and death dates, and sometimes the place of birth or the occupation of a deceased person.

While not technically a true vital record, coffin plates can be seen as a substitute for vital records or at the least a good clue. In the case of people who died before civil registration it might be one of the few written records genealogists will find in their hunt for that brick wall ancestor!

If you want to know more about what things qualify as a true Vital Records there is a good article at the Olive Tree.

Remember when searching for Coffin Plates on the net they are sometimes referred to as Coffin Plaques, Casket plates or Casket Plaques.
