Discover your ancestors through the North Cheshire Burials of Non-Residents records. The records can reveal valuable information about your ancestor buried in Chester’s county town. They are specifically for those who are buried in Cheshire but resided elsewhere; such as, Blackpool or Derby. You will find your relative’s residential information and date of death.
Each record includes a transcript of the original burial record. The amount of information in each record can differ, but most will include the following.
There are 2,450 burials recorded in the Stockport Municipal Cemetery. These records include a sum of money listed in the notes field. The money is related to the cost of the burial plot. Prior to the 19th century burials took place primarily on church grounds. Issues of hygiene and cost became more apparent with the growing population. This led to the creation of independent cemeteries either municipally owned or run by joint stock companies. Burial Boards were then formed to be responsible for fixing the fees and charges for grave plots and burials. The amount of money spent on burials range from 4s to over £1. The range in cost could be owed to the location of the burial plot or the day of the week for the burial. The money is listed in pre-decimalised amounts.
