Burial and cremation searches

Please note, we're not able to carry out burial and cremation searches at the moment. We hope that we'll be able to start offering them again in around 6 months' time.


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

  1. date of death - at least the year
  2. name of cemetery
  3. full name

If your information is accurate and the search is easy, you may not be charged. If we need to do a search of several cemeteries and more than one year, you may be charged.

Searches can take up to 42 working days.


Searching the burial or cremation records for one given year costs £11.25.

If the information is not available in that year, you'll be charged £6.25 for every additional year we search.


Anyone can search the burial records at the Bereavement Services office, but you can only access the burial register and grave register if the information does not contain any references to living people. Email us at to find out more.

Certain burial records are available on microfilm at Teesside Archives. You can view these free of charge. To find out more, contact Teesside Archives by calling 01642 248321 or emailing
