Heaton Cemetery MapDeceased Online have now added the records for Heaton Cemetery to their Bolton collection. The records start from 1879 and go right up to this year 2012. Heaton is a large cemetery with in excess of 95,000 burials

The data offers scans of the burial registers which have a lot more information than the Victorian era church burial registers, grave registers giving details of who is buried in the grave and cemetery maps so that a burial site can be identified if you wish to visit.
