Bath and Somerset records added to Deceased Online

Bath and North East Somerset: records for first three sites now available on Deceased Online

Over the next few weeks, all records for eight cemeteries and a crematorium managed by Bath and North East Somerset Council in south west England will be added to

Immediately available are over 120,000 individual records for two cemeteries near Bath city centre together with Haycombe Crematorium located on the south west edge of the city.

The two burial sites are Twerton Cemetery in Bellots Road and St James Cemetery (formerly Lyncombe, Widcombe and St James), with records that date back to 1861. Haycombe Crematorium records date from its opening in 1961.

As well as digital scans of registers, the records available on Deceased Online also include grave details, indicating all those buried in each grave, and section maps for both cemeteries indicating the section of the cemetery where each grave is located.

Over the next few weeks, records for another five cemeteries managed by Bath and North East Somerset Council will be added to Deceased Online.

The historic city of Bath is a world heritage site and famously dates back to Roman times. Its spa heritage became extremely fashionable in the 18th century with Beau Nash presiding over Bath's rich culture, and Jane Austen lived in the city in the early 19th century. Emma Jolly's latest blog looks at some of the records now available for Bath and North East Somerset.

Other south west England records available on Deceased Online include Blandford Forum (Dorset), Cullompton (Devon), Wiltshire Council, and records from The National Archives collection for many sites.
