Birth Records and Death Records on Coffin Plates© AncestorsAtRest.com
The history of Coffin Plates or casket plates is a long but not very well documented one. Coffin plates are decorative adornments attached to the coffin that contain free genealogical information like the name and death date of the
Originally the manufacture of coffin plates was of course a cottage industry. The plates were made by a variety of craftsmen and woman with varying levels of skill. Wealthy people were able to contract with a skilled metalworker or silversmith and as a result some of the most elaborate plates can rightly be considered works of art. On the other end of the scale many plates were made by the local blacksmith or tinsmith and are of a crude and simple design.
In the late 1840s the first machine made coffin plates began to appear. At first they were simple shapes stamped out of a flat piece of metal. An example of would be the coffin plate of Lucy A Smith who died in 1848. Soon more elaborate shapes with fancy designs stamped on them began to appear and by the 1860s there were literally dozens of shapes and styles from many different manufacturers to choose from. The industrial manufactured coffin plates of course had no names on them. They were in fact just blanks that were intended to be engraved by someone in the local community such as a jeweller or undertaker. As such the quality of the engraving varies wildly.
See a 1790 Coffin Plate makers newspaper advertisment.
In North Americaat the same time that the use of coffin plates was increasing in popularity the practice of removing the plates from the coffin before burial increased. Often the Coffin Plates were never attached to the coffin but displayed on a stand or table next to it. An example of this can be seen in the photo of the coffin plate of Charles Diven Glenn. The coffin plates were removed to be kept as mementos by the loved ones of the deceased. This practice started in the early 1840s and was particularly popular in the North Eastern United States, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island. The farther you get from the Northeastern U.S. the less common the practice becomes. This practice peaked in the late 19th century (1880~1899) and by the 1920s this practice had all but stoped.
In some more rare cases the plates are removed when the grave is disturbed for some reason like cemetery relocation. This is more common in Europe were space for graves is at a premium.
It must be noted that most of the coffin plates on this site are the small decorative kind favored in North America. Not the large breastplate kind that were more popular in England. The Large Breastplate Coffin Plates were so large ( about 12 or 15 inches tall ) they were never intended to be taken home by the family. I have a few examples of the Large Breastplate Coffin Plates at the bottom of this page in the England section.
The usefulness information found on coffin plates varies with each individual plate. Some coffin plates have only a name so are of almost no value to a genealogist as it is almost impossible to know who that individual was. It is however possible to get some idea of when the plate was manufactured as the styles and manufacturing techniques of plates changed over the years. It must be noted however that the plate may have sat in some undertakers inventory for years or even decades before it was used. To help narrow down the date of use one needs to look at the style of engraving that was used as this also changed over time.
However many coffin plates contain much more information than just a name. Most have a date of birth and death and many contain much more. Some coffin plates even contain a photograph of the individual. Below you will find a list of some of the information it is possible to find on a coffin plate.
Unfortunately these valuable resources are scattered and there has not been a single repository for this valuable free genealogy resource until now. It is my intention to create a coffin plate database and a home for the unwanted plates themselves.

Canada and the United StatesNOTE: If the coffin plate has the notation FOUND IN it means that is the location that the coffin plate was found. It is not necessarily the place that the individual lived. Most of the coffin plates on this page are over 100 years old and they may have traveled a long way as they were passed from generation to generation.-->
