Buried in Bath?

Somerset ancestors? Over 240,000 entries from 1660 to the present for 48 cemeteries and burial grounds are included in the Bath Burial Index compiled by volunteers for the Bath Record Office.
Fields in the index are: Surname, Forenames, Born (approx.), Died, Buried, Age, Notes and, in some cases, a link to an image.
The cemeteries vary in size from Locksbrook – St Swithin’s Walcot with 29,571 burials since 1864 to 13 burials at Prior Park, Bath. Each has a page associated with comprehensive documentation on the cemetery.

Thanks for this post John. Was able to get a 'hit' right away for a Jamaican relative of my wife.

My thanks too. An ancestor was a servant in The Circle in Bath, and her family was from 'thereabouts' and I found many.

Useful site. A keeper
