The Burial Registers for all our eight cemeteries are stored in the Bereavement Services Office in Kendal, together with plans showing the layout of all graves. The registers are not computerised yet, but are all indexed by name and date of burial.

Read our family research guidance

Before you start

To help us with the search we will ask you to give us as much information as possible, including:

  •   the full name of the deceased
  •   a reasonably accurate date of burial or interment of ashes
Please note that if you require us to carry out a general search without dates, a fee may be payable.

Do not use this form to:

  •   Request a search of burials in churchyards in the district. These are usually available by contacting the Minister in charge of the church, although older registers may have been lodged at the Cumbria Archives.
