Research

 

 

 

The British Cemetery often gets enquiries relating to the Parish Registers and graves located within the Cemetery. Although former grave inscription surveys were carried out in 1824 and 1943 ( the latter by the Reverend H. F. Fulford Williams ), a new survey is underway to bring all recorded grave inscriptions and grave positions up to date. New, detailed, plans are being produced which show exact grave positions within each section of the Cemetery not only to aid the Administrators, Clergy, Church Wardens, and Parishioners, but also to enable easier location when enquiries are made.

 

As will be appreciated, this, and the transcription of the Parish Registers, are ongoing projects and take considerable time and resources. Unfortunately the Cemetery has limited sources of income and it is thought best that any enquiries requiring the time of Officers or the Archivists, or the production of digital copies and/or more extensive genealogical work, need, of necessity, to attract appropriate donations to cover costs. Until now this has been in the form of a purely voluntary donation, however it is now felt that a 'suggested donation' would be both a guide to enquirers and more appropriate.

 

The following is a schedule of suggested donations. Payment in advance would be appreciated and can be made by contacting the Cemetery Administrator who can give details of how to make donation payments.

Genealogical Service:

We can offer a more comprehensive service drawing on records held by the Cemetery plus additional external sources. This would result in a report tailored to your needs with associated paperwork, copies and family tree.
