The Oswestry Cemetery Burials Database

A database has been created with information from the Cemetery burial registers. The images from the photographic grave survey, grave mapping co-ordinates and genealogical information about the people buried in the Cemetery were added to the database during the project. Currently, genealogical entries for the first two burial registers have been added and the images of 30 of the 32 grave sections. Each grave has been recorded by GPS and their positions are identifiable on maps.

The burials database is available to search using the search tab on the toolbar at the top of the page.
