Finding a relative's grave

A picture of Posbrook CemeteryIf you are trying to find a relative's grave and you think he/she was buried in one of the eight cemeteries we manage, you might find our burial record search helpful. It is free to use and we can provide more detailed information for a fee of £5.00. This might include the age of the person at the time of death, occupation, address and where he/she died. To do this, we study the Burial Registers so availability will be subject to details being included in these. If you wish to visit the grave, a location plan showing its position in the cemetery can be sent to you.
