Saul Issroff has provided the information that FamilySearch has added
additional indexed records to their collection of civil death records
from the Cape Province for the period >from 1895 to 1972. In addition to
searching by first and last name for those records that are indexed, all
of the 2.2 million images in this collection can be browsed.

The images are organized by year of death and then by municipality (or
district in some cases). These records come >from the National Archives
of South Africa and contain a considerable amount of information, such
as place of birth, intended place of burial, cause of death and
residence. Access is free at
