Burial Records and Monumental Transcriptions

Transcriptions of burial registers of a wide range of Sheffield parish churches. Detail varies between records depending upon what was recorded at the time. At a minimum this covers name, age and date of burial but may also include address, occupation, name of relative and even, occasionally, cause of death. For a guide to Sheffield parishes see Books about Sheffield records and research, item SHE-G110.
