We keep records of burials in the cemeteries we manage at Mayshill, Filton, Mangotsfield and Kingswood Remembrance Park.
Records held for Mayshill date back to 1973, Filton to 1947 and Mangotsfield to 1880. They contain the name of the person buried, the grave number and the person who bought the grave.
If you are researching your family tree you can get burial records from us. There is a fee for this service.
Records of burials in churchyards in South Gloucestershire are available through the relevant parish church.
