Births, marriages, deaths and nationality Burial records

Research your family history online through our Burial Records Service

There are two ways of finding burial records in Manchester:

There are approximately 800,000 records dating back to 1837, relating to Manchester General, Gorton, Philips Park, Blackley and Southern cemeteries, and they are an invaluable historical reference to our past and provide an insight into the lives of our ancestors.

To make a search all you have to do is enter some simple information such as forename, surname, date of burial and cemetery. The more details you are able to enter the more accurate the search will be, but it is not essential to complete all the search fields.

Please note:

The burial records system does not use cookies to create a viewing history for individuals and as a consequence does not track which records have been purchased by individual users. To save a record and view again you will have to either save the deceased's details page to your own computer as a web page or print a copy of the page. By clicking on a record you have already viewed you will be deducted another credit. Likewise, by back tabbing to a previously viewed record you will be deducted another credit, as the page will refresh into the browser.
