Family History Research

If you’re looking for a relative or ancestor who may have been buried in the General Cemetery, we may be able to help.

We have access to the burial records and for a small donation, which is used to fund our work, we can help you find a burial plot and provide information from the burial records and cemetery maps to help you find the burial plot

Please note - we can only access the cemetery records by date, not by name at the present time.

We open the cemetery, and have access to the full cemetery records, twice a year. More details are on our Events page.
