Database Reports

a cemetery memorial

Our records provide a valuable resource for family historians and other researchers.

Every burial since the cemetery opened on 21 January 1837 is recorded on a fully searchable computer database. The Database records over 10,200 different surnames in the cemetery Burial Registers.

There is no public access to the database but the Genealogy Team will be pleased to carry out searches in response to enquiries.

During the current pandemic we can accept emailed enquiries only.

We look forward to re-opening when we will be pleased to receive enquiries by
letter, telephone, email or personal visits
