Locating a grave

At the time of purchase a grave is given a reference number, which can help in locating a grave, although it can be difficult for owners to locate a grave unless it is marked in some way.  The best way of doing so is with a temporary grave marker or a permanent memorial.

To carry out a grave search you will need the full name of the deceased and the date of death.

For a small fee, you can make an online search of over 800,000 burial records dating back to 1837 for Manchester City Council's five cemeteries

You can also search in person at Manchester Central Library.
