Discover whether your ancestor died in Dorset by searching more than 110,000 inscriptions taken from gravestones, tombs, monuments and even stained glass windows found in more than 250 parishes across the county.
Each record contains a transcription of the original inscription. The information contained varies considerably and depends on a number of factors including weathering and the type of memorial. Most will reveal a combination of your ancestor’s age at death, birth year, death year, burial year, burial place, religious denomination, dedication, inscription, memorial type and relative’s names.
This collection was created from transcripts made in the 1980s of the memorial inscriptions in the Cheriton Road Cemetery in Folkestone, Kent. In some instances, the individual may only be commemorated on a memorial and not, in fact, buried there. During the transcription process, some graves were recorded twice with slight differences.
The collection contains over 112,000 records. Each result includes a transcript that will reveal a combination of your ancestor’s name, death date, burial year, religious denomination, parish and memorial reference.
