Explore the Montgomeryshire Burials and reveal your Welsh relatives. Civil registration of burials did not start until 1837, which makes these records a valuable addition to your family history. You will discover your ancestor’s burial location, burial date and another ancestral name for your family tree.
Each record includes a transcript of the original burial records. The amount of information can differ between records but most will include the following information.
Montgomeryshire is one of the thirteen historic counties of Wales. The county was abolished and amalgamated with Radnorshire and Breconshire to create the county of Powys in 1974. The records also includes the villages of Mallwyd and Llanymawddwy of the historic county of Merionethshire, which bordered Montgomeryshire. The two towns were considered under the Montgomeryshire jurisdiction at different times and therefore included in these records.
Montgomeryshire Burials includes one entry, Anne Clement, from the county of Anglesey an island off the northwest coast of Wales. Clement was a resident of Anglesey, but the burial took place in Machynlleth, Montgomeryshire. For the same reason this is one record from Staffordshire, William Dawson, who was buried in Montgomeryshire.
