Bolton burial records on Deceased Online increase to 200,000+


Heaton is 2nd Bolton cemetery added to Deceased Online

  • With over 95,000 burial records, Heaton is the second cemetery managed by Bolton Council to be added to Deceased Online
  • Following the launch last week of Tonge Cemetery, the inclusion of all data for Heaton brings the size of the database for the area to 211,000 burials
  • The data for Heaton Cemetery commences with the first burials in 1879 through to 2012 and comprises:
o Details of all graves indicating those buried in each grave
o Scans of all burial registers
o Cemetery maps indicating grave locations*
* Note: The cemetery maps indicate the section where the selected grave is located. Each section or block comprises approximately 100 graves and as many of the headstones incorporate grave reference numbers it is relatively easy to find the searched-for grave using the maps.
