Pages continues in another batch: South Africa, Johannesburg—Cemetery Records, 1840–2019
I am reviewing and I have run across several batches that should have been connected with another batch. They dont have the Given/Surname that go with the death and recording dates have information from another batch.
Basically page 1 (names/age/sex) is in a different batch and the first image of my batch starts with page 2 (death/ recording dates) and ends with an image for the next names. Names are on page 1 and death/ burial dates on page 2, but the names and dates on the images dont go together.
How is this indexed? or reviewed?

Please post the Batch Code for a batch with the problem you’re describing so we can look at one ourselves. The Batch Code is the combination of letters and numbers you see at the very end of your batch’s name. It is .enclosed in [. ] brackets and looks like this: MXXX-XXX. It’s always best to include it when you ask a question.
Batches like the ones you’ve described could be flawed, but Its also possible they are covered under the following guidance from the General Indexing Guidelines (GIG).
What to Do When Records Span 2 Images or to View Additional Images
- If the first record on an image begins on a previous image, don't index it. The record will be indexed as part of the previous batch. Start indexing at the first complete record.
- If the last record on an image continues to the next image, index the entire record, including what continues to the next image.
- To see the next image while continuing to index information for the current image, do the following:
1. In the top corner of the image window, in the vertical toolbar, click the Reference Images
2. Below the screen on the right, click a thumbnail next to the image you are currently indexing.
3. Index the record while viewing both images at the same time.
4. To exit split screen mode, in the vertical toolbar, click the Reference Images
