Burial records

It is important to us that you find a relative if they are buried in the cemetery.

If you would like us to undertake a search on your behalf, are unable to find who you are looking for or would like a grave location please contact us using the contact form on this website.

Many graves are unmarked by headstones or monuments but, from our records, we are able to provide information to locate the exact location. It should be accepted that this is a continuing work in progress and many areas of the cemetery have not yet been cleared to make access easy.

Our volunteers will be pleased to find and show you the exact location of your ancestor or person in whom you are interested.

To help us cover some of the ongoing costs involved in the upkeep of the Cemetery and Chapel, we request a minimum donation of £15, payable at the time, for which a receipt will be issued.

 

The cemetery records have been transcribed by kind permission of Wisbech Museum and undertaken by a small team of dedicated volunteers.

We would welcome short histories of those buried in the cemetery for our records and displays.

Please note that names in the original burial register can be misspelt, Christian names changed, and ages or dates advised by relatives inaccurate. If a search fails retry using only the first one to two letters of the surname. It is also possible that a letter has been misinterpreted so it is worth trying alternatives.

The Cemetery is a calm and beautiful place which must be respected in memory of those buried therein so the following rules have been formulated to retain the ethos of the Victorian Graveyard and the health and safety of visitors:

  1. The graves and monuments remain the responsibility of Wisbech Society and not descendants of the deceased
  2. Care should be taken approaching monuments: those marked unsafe by Fenland District Council must not be approached
  3. No existing memorial or headstone must be cleaned,moved, straightened or marked.
  4. No new memorials or markers may be added without written consent and approval.
  5. No tributes, floral or otherwise, or decorations must be placed in the cemetery. The only exception is for British Legion poppies at Remembrance time.
  6. No clearance of undergrowth or plants may be done without written agreement.
  7. Graves can be tended by family members and friends. Only the grave itself may be tidied : the immediate surroundings must be left untended so as not to disturb wildlife
  8. Should a member of the public wish to contribute towards the restoration of a particular monument this can be discussed by using the contact form on this website. Donations for the general upkeep of the cemetery are always welcome.
