Cemeteries in County Durham

Paperback: 24 pages
Publisher: Durham County Record Office (Revised 2016)
ISBN: 950049247
Dimensions: 21 x 29.6 x 0.1 cm

A list of the local authority cemeteries and crematoria in the area of the historic county of Durham (i.e. the present county, the city of Sunderland, the boroughs of Darlington, Hartlepool and Stockton on Tees, and the metropolitan boroughs of Gateshead and South Tyneside).

The cemeteries were opened from the middle of the nineteenth century to cope with the problem of increased population and resulting pressure on the existing parish graveyards, many of which were closed during this period.

This guide gives cemetery names and locations, opening dates and the location of the cemetery records, either in Durham County Record Office or elsewhere.
