Manchester General Cemetery Project

clip_image002Whilst researching the previous post I came across this website regarding the project to record all the monumental inscriptions in the Manchester General Cemetery. Great website, beautifully presented and with lots of information.

What would the genealogy world do without volunteers such as these. Browsing the website they haven’t just meandered round and recorded the upright stones, but have dug, prised up and generally excavated stones that have fallen over. Well done team Smile

Manchester Burials Online

IMG_2759Have you got ancestors who might have been buried in Manchester ? If so then this is the website for you. Manchester City Council offer a free database of the burials in the cemeteries in their care.

The database is very easy to use, you put in the names of your ancestor, hit the submit button and it comes up with a list of possible entries. This page gives you the burial date, full name, Cemetery, grave number and at the end of the row is a “view details” button. Click on that and it takes you to a list of who else is in the grave.

You can buy credits which will give you fuller details, but the free part of the database is very helpful on its own.
