Search Burials
  • The records in this database have been donated by volunteer transcribers worldwide. Although every effort has been made to ensure that the transcriptions are as accurate as possible, researchers are advised to consult the originals for themselves. Unless mentioned otherwise in Transcriber Notes, the source for each record is the Parish Register.
  • The wildcard (%) is applied by default to the right hand side of some search terms. To obtain more results, keep your search terms to a minimum e.g. to find all variations for Stephen, search for 'St' in the forename field.
  • Parish names should be entered as in other searches e.g. 'Juliot, St.' rather than 'St Juliot' but  'Jul' would be sufficient
  • The calendar prior to 1752 was different. The year ran from 25th March to the following 24th March. See pre-1752 Calendar for details.
  • Abbreviations used: BT - Bishops' Transcripts, W - burials in woollen, C - burials in a cemetery rather than a Church graveyard, see details here.
  • Where the Parish is displayed as West Briton, this indicates that the record comes from the West Briton and Cornwall Advertiser. The Burial Date is the date of the edition of the newspaper, which was published weekly on Friday.

 Search for exact surname (no wildcard)  ?
Search for exact surname: By default the search facility adds a wildcard (%) to the end of the surname to return more results. If you want to search for an exact surname, tick this box and the wildcard search will be disabled.
 Include similar surnames  ?
Include Similar Surnames: Ticking this option will search for any surnames that have a similar sounding name to your search, based on the Soundex algorithm. This only works if the surname you've entered is more than 2 characters. It may also slow down your search.
 Include nearby parishes  ?
Include Nearby Parishes: Ticking this option will include any parishes that are deemed to be near to the one you're searching for. This will only work if you've specified the exact parish. It will also only work if there are any parishes registered as near to the one you're searching for.
