Sheffield Churchyard Burial Records

Transcriptions of entries in the 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. All information recorded in the register has been transcribed.

St John Chapeltown 1860-1971, St Mary Ecclesfield 1813-1909 and St Peter Tankersley 1598-1840 Burial Records

Transcriptions of burials in the churchyards of three parishes in the north of Sheffield. The growth of Chapeltown in the far north of Sheffield during the nineteenth century was stimulated by the establishment of the company of Newton Chambers, while the village of Ecclesfield to the north of Sheffield boasts a fine medieval building known as the ‘minster of the moors’. This parish covered a large area of scattered farmsteads and minor settlements beyond the village centre. The village of Tankersley lies to the north of Sheffield within the southern boundary of the metropolitan district of Barnsley. Transcriptions of entries in baptism and marriage registers at the Ecclesfield and Tankersley churches are also available for download.
