The Modern Records Centre at the University of Warwick holds records of the Friendly Society of Operative Stonemasons of England, Ireland and Wales and its successors. See here for details: http://www2. warwick.ac.uk/services/library/mrc/explorefurther/subject_guides/family_history/stone/ Deaths of Society members, and their wives and (from 1862) their children, were announced in 'fortnightly returns' 1834-1910. There is an online index to these death announcements. One example of a fortnightly return is shown in full. See second page for format of the death announcements . . . but other parts look interesting too.
