Checking for Burials and Locating Graves in Darwen Cemetery.
Anyone wishing to check for details of a burial should use:
The index, which can be searched free of charge, shows the name and date of burial of the deceased and the cemetery where the interment took place. For a small charge (£1.50 - £2.50) the user can obtain details of the other interments in the same grave and the grave reference number.
b) Microfilmed copies of the burial registers are available in both Darwen and Blackburn Libraries and can be searched free of charge.
Alternatively the Bereavement Services Office can be contacted at:
Bereavement Services Office
Blackburn, BB2 5LE
Telephone No : 01254 202021
There may be a charge for information supplied depending upon the amount of time involved in searching the records.
Anyone wishing to have a grave plot marked needs to provide the Bereavement Services Office with details of the plot (grave reference) number. Currently there is no charge for this but it may take a few days for the plot to be marked.
We would like to thank Nicola Ward for all the time and advise given to compile this page, from both herself and the other members of the team at the Cemeteries Office.
