Cotswold burial records coming soon

Approximately 20,000 burial records for two cemeteries managed by Cotswold District Council are to be made available on Deceased Online (www.deceasedonline.com) next week.

The cemeteries are Chesterton Cemetery, opened 1872, and Stratton Cemetery (in Stratton, just outside Cirencester), with records from 1888. All records for both cemeteries will be made available. The records will comprise of digital scans of burial registers, details of graves and maps indicating the locations of many of the graves. Cotswold District Council is a large area serving a region that stretches from Chipping Campden in the north down to Tetbury in the south west and covering towns such as Moreton-in-Marsh, Bourton and Stow-on-the-Wold.

Deceased Online recently added all records for Cheshire West and Chester City. For details of all data available on the site, see the ‘database coverage’ section at www.deceasedonline.com.
