From Deceased Online (

Records added for 8 cemeteries in Redcar & Cleveland, North Yorkshire

Redcar & Cleveland is the first council area in North Yorkshire included on with the addition of all records for 8 cemeteries dating back to 1857.

Immediately available are records for 4 locations:

Boosbeck (1931 - 2010)
Brotton (1936 - 2010)
Eston (1863 - 2010)

The records available comprise scans of burial registers, details of each grave and, coming soon, cemetery section maps indicating grave locations

Records for the remaining four cemeteries will be available very soon. For full details, see the database coverage summary.

The location and history of Redcar & Cleveland on the North Yorkshire coast are reflected in many of the burial records such as this mariner's memorial.

The National Archives (TNA), burial ground removals

Following last week's launch of burial ground removals dating back to the 16th century, many users have asked about more details of the TNA records.

All information on the nearly 200 burial grounds are listed by English or Welsh region and then in alphabetical order by county in the database coverage section.

Among the 105,000 records available currently (more will be added next week), those with the highest number of burials include:

Cathay's Cemetery, Cardiff (1828-1992)
Old Cemetery, Gloucester (1800-1973)
Holy Trinity Churchyard, Liverpool (1790-1887)
Bath Street Burial Ground,Walsall (1756-1941)
West Hill Cemetery, Winchester (1826-1970)
Several sites in Manchester and Salford dating from 1508
