Our Find a Grave Event

find_a_grave_event_2019_2On Saturday 13th July 2019 we held our very first Find a Grave Event, we had requests to help find 15 Family Graves in the Western Cemetery.

With the help of Billy Briggs, who knows the Cemetery better than anybody else, we were able to locate the plot location on all the graves on the day.

Due to the success on the day we are sure that we will hold the event again in the future.

Thank you for everybody involved.

Have you tried to find a grave but failed then don't worry?

The Friends of Darwen Cemetery are holding a "Find a Grave" day.
By using the information you can supply the Friends will use their knowledge of the Western Cemetery to find your ancestor's final resting place.

This is a free event and will be on Saturday 13 July 10.30am to 1pm.


The more information you can supply about your ancestry the better but the minimum details are



Year of death

It will help if you can supply details of the deceased event prior to the day by emailing them to tonyfoster@darwencemetery.org.uk

Alternatively, you can turn up on the day with the information.

Please note: This event is limited to graves in the western cemetery.
