Burial and cremation searches

The risks of coronavirus remain high. To keep everyone safe, please stay cautious. Get the latest information about coronavirus.


To search burial and cremation records we need the following information:

1. Date of death - at least the year if possible
2. Name of cemetery
3. Full name

If we have accurate information for the above and the search is easy, you may not be charged. If a search of several cemeteries and more than one year is made, you may be charged.


For searching the burial or cremation records the following charges will apply:

a) Searching the registers in one given year - £11.25
b) Every additional year after the first year - £6.25


Anyone can search the burial records at the Cemeteries and Crematorium Office, but you can only access the burial register and grave register if the information doesn't contain any references to living people. To make an appointment to search the registers, you must visit the Bereavement Services Office. Call 01642 817725 for more information.

Certain burial records are available at Teesside Archives in Exchange Square, and these are accessible free of charge on microfilm. To make an appointment to visit Teesside Archives, call 01642 248321 or email
