Cotswold burial records going live

From Decaesed Online (www.deceasedonline.com):

Approximately 20,000 burial records for two cemeteries managed by Cotswold District Council are now available on Deceased Online

Chesterton Cemetery, opened 1872, is located in the ‘Cotswold capital’ Cirencester and Stratton Cemetery (in Stratton, just outside Cirencester) has records from 1888. All records for both cemeteries are available.

The records comprise 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.
