East Staffordshire records feature Burton on Trent's historic Stapenhill Cemetery

Records for the two cemeteries managed by East Staffordshire Borough Council in the English West Midlands are now available on

The major site is the historic Stapenhill Cemetery in Burton on Trent, which opened almost exactly 150 years ago and features many records reflecting 19th Century industries and, in particular, numerous names associated with Burton's beer and brewing heritage. During much of the 19th and early 20th centuries, Burton was regarded as Britain's 'beer capital' and at its peak there were dozens of breweries, the most famous of which are still well known brands today: Bass, Marston's and Worthington, to name a few.
