Burials, Inscriptions and Transcripts

St George Stalybridge - Family History

The Burial Registers and the Memorial Inscriptions for both Old and New St George, were transcribed by Mr George Clark of Stalybridge in approximately 2005-8, and have since been updated by vicars of the Parish.

We are currently doing a major review and update of all the records, together with a search index across the documents for both Old and New St. George, which should assist with research into family history.

This is currently a 'work in progress' and at the moment we will update individual documents on the website as they are completed.

Currently the search index ('burials index' on the left) contains the register information and we are now expanding this to incorporate Memorial information (information and other family members mentionned on gravestones).  The memorial documents themselves however are below.  In order to search for a particular name or grave, we recommend using the search index first to identify the register entries, then you will be able to come back to this page.

Each Burial Register also has its own surname index which shows the entry numbers for each name.

You may also find useful the links below to 'Other external resources'.  Please note external resources may not provide all of our current records, or they may differ.
