Burial Register

Visible gravestones in St Lawrence Church grounds were mapped in 2016.  The burial register from 1813 to the present day was recently scanned to .pdf file, and all entries entered to a spreadsheet.  Anyone searching for ancestors can make contact via this web site to request information.  Unfortunately, records immediately after the Second World War and into the 1950s appear to be incomplete.

The following graph is an analysis of age at death by time period for all entries in the Burial Register.  It gives an interesting insight into the increase in life expectancy, and the narrower age range at which people died.  In particular there is a significant decrease in child mortality.
