Genealogy news, Family History links for your English Family Tree
This collection contains cemetery registers from Hollinwood, Failsworth, Royton, Crompton, Chadderton, Lees, and Greenacres cemeteries in Oldham. Most registers contain, name, address, date of death, date of burial and burial location.
The records start from when the cemeteries were established so don’t expect records from 1797 for all the cemeteries. There is a more details explanation about the records if you click on the “learn more” button.
The records are very extensive featuring Burial Registers, Crematorium Registers, Stillborn Registers, Armed Services & War Dead Registers, Grave Plans & Family Plot Registers. There are indexes, but you can also browse through scans of the original documents. Wonderful resource. It’s just a pity that I don’t have anyone from Oldham !!
History, particularly Family History is my passion. I have worked in libraries & archives, I teach family history, conduct workshops and give genealogy presentations. It seemed a shame to have all this knowledge & experience and not share it with others, so this website was born.
