Tracing Family Relatives

St Mary’s, East Bergholt

Full burials are no longer conducted in the St Mary’s churchyard. For details of burials in East Bergholt after 1850 please contact the East Bergholt Parish Clerk Valerie Ayton 01206 298692 or east.bergholtpc@btconnect.com.

The Garden of Remembrance in the churchyard has been in use for about 15 years and is used for the burial of ashes only. Old registers are stored in the Suffolk Record Office and you can contact them on 01473 263909

St Michael’s, Brantham

The upper churchyard is now closed for full burials and ashes only are interred in the ashes area. The lower churchyard is almost full and we are negotiating with the local Parish Council for a new one. Old registers are stored in the Suffolk Record Office and you can contact them on 01473 263909. We do have a book produced by the WI who recorded inscriptions on graves that are now illegible. Please contact the Rector for further information. A fee for searches of this nature is payable.
