I thought it was a Manx name but did not know it was that popular, as I have been trying to access the IOM BMDs but can only find so many on www.lawsons.com so is there anywhere else to access the full IOM BMDs as I have tried the sites suggested but still getting stuck as currently only able to access IOM Cencuses?
The cemetery located on the Douglas Road, about a mile East of Peel, was established as the Burial ground for Kirk German. There was some argument over the site, when a replacement was needed for the graveyard around St. peters church at the Market Place in Peel. The first burials took place in the Peel cemetery in 1853, though burials continued at St. Peters, the Parish Church at that time until 1887

Andreas is the only one of the 17 original parishes, which is named after one of the Apostles - Andrew. Almost all of those parishes were named after the Celtic Irish Saints. When the parish first occurs in written record, in the Manorial records of 1515, it appeared as Andrea and the last of the native Gaelic speakers always spoke of the parish as Skyll Andrea. In the records of the 18th Century, the name is expanded to Andrews.
It is well known that not all names were recorded and sometimes only part names were legible due to deteriation of the Register (damp, mice etc) The IOM FHS could find no entries in the original Burial Register between 22nd April 1686 and 22nd August 1703
