Family History

Burial grounds are places of memory and remembrance. They are also a focus for research into family and local history. Wardsend Cemetery is the resting place of 30,000 people. Over the years we have created burial plans and complied burial lists that enable members of the public to locate ancestors or research people of interest.

Recently, Anne Diver was able to locate a distant relative and you can read about her story here.
