If you prefer, you can book an appointment to come and look through our cemetery burial registers yourself. You’ll have to handle them carefully and wear protective gloves. Our staff may interrupt you if they need to use the registers as part of their normal working day.
It costs £12 for an appointment.
Unfortunately, you can’t search crematorium registers yourself, they aren’t available to the public under any circumstances.
If you can’t find the burial record:
- expand the time frame by a year or two
- try a neighbouring district, the person might have been registered there instead
- try the General Register Office, especially if the person was born or died abroad
