    This link will take you to a fascinating website-even if you don't have Oxford ancestors.

    Click on any name in the index and you will see what I mean.

    I only have one family grave in the list but I can't stop clicking on all the others.

    The group who operate this site deserve a medal -it's brilliant

    We've all seen graveyard records on websites but this one really is something else- you don't expect to see coroners reports, newspaper articles, portraits and a lot more.
    I clicked on names at random and found a woman killed by her husband with a sword, a much loved faithful family servant and even (totally unexpectedly) my great grandfathers landlord. I bookmarked it and keep going back to read all the detail.
    If I can tear myself away I am going to have to message them to let them know how fabulous their site is
