Local Cemeteries, Graveyards & Burial Grounds

This Foldout collects the entries for some of the local Cemeteries, Graveyards and Burial Grounds


General Notes

Burial grounds – as distinct from churchyards – were started by nonconformists in the 17th century.

The local cemeteries and burial grounds will be of interest to anyone tracing their family history.

Many towns and cities opened their own public cemeteries following an Act of Parliament in 1853.
