Not long ago I could enter a specific date for births and deaths that would show all years on that date  Now I can only get a range of deaths between certain dates, not specific dates.  Can you please help?  Thank you.

Hi.  I'm still having a hard time with this search.  I hope you can help me.  If I want a list of all people who died on April 25 (covering all years), how would I search for that?  Thank you if you can.

If it's still supported, it's well-hidden. I even tried guessing what the parameter name would be, and modified the URL of the birthday search. Instead of birth_monthday I tried death_monthday, but got taken back to the Advance Name Search blank page.

IMDb did some major updates in Nov & Dec, and some features were removed. Looks like this is one.

Then again, I see such lists on IMDb from time to time. When I did a google search for
"died april 25 site:imdb.com/list", I got this list:
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls069173237/
The list author has many such lists (click on his userid right under the title of the list.)
Of course, we have no way of knowing whether these are all the people in IMDb who died that day.

It seems there are other resources online for this info, which showed up when I tried a google search for that specific day.

Hi Scott,

I can confirm that this feature was removed as part of the updates detailed in this thread.

I recommend creating an Idea thread where this can be shared for other IMDb staff and users to review.

Let us know if we can offer any further help.

Could we convert this topic to an Idea?
