About Us

In the Beginning

Founded in 1982, Gower Consultants have provided computer systems to cemeteries and crematoria since 1985 and have held a consistent position since then as the UK's leading supplier to the industry.

Deceased Online

In 2007, Gower Consultants and Manuscripti Ltd began an equal partnership project called Deceased Online; the UK's first online database where statutory burial and cremation records can be searched and viewed from across the globe.  Deceased Online currently holds over 25 million records.

U​nder New Management

In late 2019, Manuscripti Ltd acquired ownership and controlling interests in Gower Consultants.  Manuscripti have carefully culvitated a reputation for customer service, quality, and efficiency within the bereavement services sector, and are providing significant investment and additional personnel to all parts of the Gower businesses.
