If you are trying to locate a family grave, contact the Cemetery Superintendant on firstname.lastname@example.org with the person’s name and relevant dates. You will be given details of which part of the cemetery the plot can be found.
If you are unable to visit the cemetery, for a donation of £10.00, the Friends group will photograph the grave and surroundings, transcribe the inscription and send them to you by post or email. Contact us with as much information as possible, including the person’s full name and date of death. We’d love to hear the story of the person you’re looking for as part of our long term plans for uncovering and sharing the history in the cemetery.

Transferring Family Plots
If you have family members buried in the cemetery but do not own the plot yourself, it may be possible to transfer ownership. This would mean that you would be able to restore the headstone if you wanted to, and may be able to arrange additional burials, space permitting. For more information contact:-
