    How to Locate a Grave in Burngreave Cemetery

    To access individual plot maps see 
    Step 1 or Step 2 below

    Background Information

    Burngreave Cemetery is divided into three distinct areas; namely Consecrated Ground, General Ground and Roman Catholic Ground. Each of these areas is subdivided into Sections, identified by a letter, multiple letters, or a letter and a number. The Roman Catholic Ground has a single identifier, namely NN. Each of these sections contains individual Grave Sites, identified by a number. The General Map, above, shows clearly the areas and sections in the cemetery.

    Identical Section and Grave numbers can be found in Consecrated and General Grounds. ie  Grave number 25 in section A occurs in both Consecrated and General Ground. Consequently, it is important to take note of the area in which the grave is located.

    Some sections, called Marginal Sections, are not identified on the General Map. These Marginal Sections are usually small strips of land adjacent to one of the sections shown on the General Map. They contain a limited number of grave sites. Individual grave sites are often not numbered in the marginal sections and are determined as in the following example:

    Marginal Section A10 (Consecrated) lies next to Section Y3. That section of Y3 contains graves Y3, 1 through Y3, 15.  Grave A10 ,9  would be located adjacent to grave Y3, 9  and  grave A10, 5 would be located adjacent to grave Y3, 5 and so on and so forth.

    See below for further detail on finding Marginal Sections.

    Step 1. 

    • Click Here to view the table containing Section Numbers and the associated Maps.
    • Determine whether the grave is in Consecrated or General Ground. NOTE:  Roman Catholic graves (Section NN), are listed under General Ground.
    • Look up the Section Number in the appropriate column. If the section number cannot be found, then chances are it is a Marginal Section – go to STEP 2.
    • Click on the corresponding Map Number to view a detailed map of the section.
    • The detailed map is available for viewing, printing or for download.

    Step 2. 

    • Click Here to view the table containing Marginal Section Numbers and the associated Maps.
    • Determine whether the grave is in Consecrated or General Ground.
    • Look up the Marginal Section Number in the appropriate column. The section number to which it is adjacent along with the map number is listed.
    • Click on the corresponding Map Number to view a detailed map of the section.
    • The detailed map is available for viewing, printing or for download.

    If the location of the grave still cannot be found after using the above procedure, please contact:

    It is with much sadness that we announce the death of John W. Cooper, 

    the hardworking gentleman who spent many years transcribing 

    the headstones in Burngreave Cemetery.
