ENGLAND JURISDICTIONS FOR 1851 is a map of the counties of England produced by Family Search. The map shows various levels of county division including parish and civil registration districts. The parish map shows all the ecclesiastical parishes in the historic county of Surrey (Anglican Church parishes).

Civil registration commenced on 1st July 1837. Over the years with the growth and movement of the population the civil registration districts have altered. REGISTRATION DISTRICTS IN SURREY on the Genuki website tracks the changes made up to 31st March 1974 and also has a downloadable place name index which includes the registration district each was registered in.

SURREY HISTORY CENTRE holds the deposited church registers for Anglican and non-conformist (those not conforming to the established church – the Church of England) for most of historic Surrey, excluding the areas now in the present day London boroughs of LAMBETH, SOUTHWARK and WANDSWORTH (which include the parishes of Balham, Battersea, Bermondsey, Brixton, Camberwell Clapham, Dulwich, Kennington, Newington, Peckham, Putney, Rotherhithe, Streatham, Tooting, Walworth and Vauxhall) which transferred to London in 1889. The registers for these churches are held at the LONDON METROPOLITAN ARCHIVES.
You can also use the search engine at AIM25 to find the parish registers held at the LMA.
In 1965 STAINES and SUNBURY were transferred from Middlesex to Surrey. In 1974 these areas became of the new Surrey borough of SPELTHORNE. Most records relating to these former Middlesex areas are held by the London Metropolitan Archives.
Parish registers held at the SURREY HISTORY CENTRE will be online by 2013 on the subscription website Ancestry.


SURREY LIBRARY LOCAL HISTORY CENTRES (Banstead, Caterham, Cranleigh, Epsom and Ewell, Lingfield, Horley and Redhill) have collections of research materials relating to their surrounding areas.
It is also worth checking the resources held at some local SURREY MUSEUMS

CHURCH BURIAL REGISTERS



The Church of Latter Day Saints (LDS), also known as Mormons, has many family history centres around the world. You can order and use their microfilms for a small charge. A list of their CENTRES     
It is worth checking their catalogue to see which parish and cemetery registers they hold on microfilm in their FILM CATALOGUE

FAMILY SEARCH England Deaths and Burials 1538-1991 a free index from the LDS with further information about the records it is sourced from.


The National Burial Index 3 (NBI) CD was released March 2010 and covers 185 burial grounds in Surrey. See the FEDERATION OF FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETIES website for coverage. Some of the indexes from the NBI are also on FINDMYPAST though not all Family History Societies have allowed their indexes from the NBI to be transferred to this website.



The subscription website Ancestry's 'THE LONDON DIGITALISATION PROGRAMME' aims to index and put images onto the internet of parish registers deposited at the London Metropolitan Archives which includes parishes in Lambeth, Southwark and Wandsworth. Other Surrey parishes are included in the project where the London Metropolitan Archives hold Bishops Transcripts for that parish 1800-1840. Bishops' Transcripts were the annual returns of baptisms, marriages and burials submitted by the parish to the bishop. The survival rate of BTs in Surrey is generally poor. Some parishes have no BTs or a surviving run of only a few years which may be intermittent. As BTs are copies of the registers they are not without errors and omissions though occasionally they may contain more information than found in the register.

London parishes arranged by current LONDON BOROUGH (includes parishes in Lambeth, Richmond-upon-Thames - parishes formerly in Middlesex, Southwark, Wandsworth and the parishes now in the Surrey borough of Spelthorne formerly in Middlesex) 

West Surrey Family History Society’s GUIDE to Surrey Bishop Transcripts contains more information.

Ancestry also some extracted parish records (not necessarily always taken from parish registers) for SURREY which includes some burial information.


Parish registers held at the SURREY HISTORY CENTRE will be online by 2013 on the subscription website Ancestry.

 


Findmypast CITY OF LONDON burial registers includes five in Southwark across the river Thames from the City (Independent Chapel, Deadman’s Place 1813 – 1837, St George the Martyr 1813 – 1868, St John Horselydown 1800 – 1865 and St Saviour 1813 – 1856, St Thomas 1813-1854) 



West Surrey Family History Society has published transcripts of church registers and monumental inscriptions (including some cemeteries ) and offer searches in their monumental inscriptions index.
Surrey burials on CD and MICROFICHE (includes City of London burial registers)
PARISH REGISTER PUBLICATIONS on microfiche 
MONUMENTAL INSCRIPTION search and MICROFICHES of monumental inscriptions published by the society.   



EAST SURREY FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY has published indexes and transcripts of burial registers and monumental inscriptions on CDs and microfiches.




Information about London churchyards and burial grounds by geographic region and parish is given at THE LONDON BURIAL GROUNDS which has background information and modern photographs (though not of individual gravestones). Many London churchyards and burial grounds have been lost mainly through redevelopment or some from bombing during World War Two. The London Burial Grounds website gives present day information on each churchyard.

A GUIDE TO BURIALS IN SURREY





NONCONFORMIST BURIAL REGISTERS NOT HELD AT SURREY HISTORY CENTRE



At the start of civil registration the government reached an agreement with most nonconformist churches. If the churches deposited their registers, in return they would be recognised as legal documents. Most churches except the Catholics deposited their records, with the Quakers (the Society of Friends) first making copies. The deposited non-conformist records are held in series RG4 (Registrar General) at The National Archives. A second smaller deposit of records was made in 1855. These records are held in series RG8. This explains why many earlier nonconformist records are held at The National Archives with only microfilmed copies of Surrey nonconformist registers at Surrey History Centre. Most of these records have been indexed on the IGI (International Genealogical Index/Family Search) the index created by the Church of the Latter Day Saints. The registers not indexed on the IGI, were the burials and the Quaker records.

Indexes and the images for all the registers are now online at BMD REGISTERS

A GUIDE TO BURIALS IN SURREY




CIVIC CEMETERIES




Every inhabitant of a parish had a right to be buried in their parish churchyard or burial ground. Before the 1840s most people were buried in Anglican churchyards, though some non-conformist churches had their own burial grounds. By the 1840s city churchyards and burial grounds were so overcrowded they were considered a growing health risk and were increasingly closed to new burials. By the early 1850s following the Burial Act of 1852, the majority of churchyards in Lambeth, Southwark and Wandsworth were closed or would be closed within the next few years. THE TIMES newspaper listed some of the closures as they took place.


As the population grew throughout the nineteenth century more large non-denominational civic cemeteries were created and churchyards in towns and urban areas were closed to new burials. Throughout the twentieth and twenty first centuries further civic cemeteries were opened administered by local parish councils in less urbanised areas of Surrey.


Churchyards in rural areas throughout Surrey still remain open to burials .Other churches where burials have ceased in their churchyards, still continued to maintain registers of burial services where the service is held at the church with the interment taking place at the cemetery, though this is not always clearly stated in the registers themselves. Increasingly in urban areas most services were held at the cemetery chapels.  Records for civic cemeteries interments are held by borough, district, town or parish councils or by the private companies which manage these cemeteries.


A useful timeline on the HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT OF CEMETERIES IN ENGLAND explains the context in which cemeteries and later crematoriums developed in this country.


With the closing of churchyards in urban areas many families could not afford the expense of a cemetery plot, let alone a gravestone. Such burials would be in common graves which contained other unrelated interments. Burial in a common grave was not synonymous with a pauper funeral. It did not mean the funeral itself was not paid for by the family. TYPES OF GRAVES IN THE CEMETERY, though not from a cemetery in Surrey, is very helpful in explaining the difference between the possible types of common, pauper and private graves.


Cemetery burial registers usually give the name of the deceased, age, abode and occupation, the date of death and of burial, and the position of the grave. These records are arranged chronologically, and are not indexed alphabetically, though some cemeteries may have some computerised indexes. If a private grave was purchased those records indicate who purchased the plot, their address, when it was purchased and whether a gravestone was erected (though not whether it survives). The records will also indicate who else was buried in the plot, when and at what depths. The plot number indicates where in the cemetery the grave is located, essential knowledge when trying to find a grave in a large cemetery.


Cremations became increasingly common after the Second World War when more crematoriums were opened. Cemeteries with crematoriums keep separate burial and cremation registers. Not all borough and district councils have crematoriums. A search for a burial or cremation may require a wider search which could include adjacent counties.


In a large and growing metropolis like London people were not always buried in their local cemetery though there were often arrangements between specific cemeteries to bury those from certain agreed geographical areas.  Cemeteries vied with each other for institutional burials since, though they were pauper burials, they represented a constant income for each cemetery. Brookwood cemetery in Woking twenty-five miles from central London nevertheless had major contracts with London poor law unions such as Bermondsey and Southwark and was also a popular cemetery for many families in London who travelled out to Woking on the cemetery’s own TRAIN SERVICE.


Some of the older London cemeteries have been neglected over the years and the gravestones have been degraded by pollution, general age and the growth of trees and undergrowth. This neglect has meant some, or sections of some cemeteries are now designated nature reserves. NUNHEAD cemetery in Southwark is one such example.

CIVIC CEMETERIES



LOCAL AUTHORITY ADMINISTRATION IN MODERN SURREY


Present day Surrey has three tiers of administration, the County Council which is responsible for services across the whole county. The second tier of administration is the eleven District and Borough Councils who are responsible for the main services within their own areas. The Surrey district and borough councils are



ELMBRIDGE BOROUGH COUNCIL

EPSOM AND EWELL BOROUGH COUNCIL

GUILDFORD BOROUGH COUNCIL

MOLE VALLEY DISTRICT COUNCIL

REIGATE AND BANSTEAD BOROUGH COUNCIL

RUNNYMEDE BOROUGH COUNCIL

SPELTHORNE BOROUGH COUNCIL

SURREY HEATH BOROUGH COUNCIL

TANDRIDGE DISTRICT COUNCIL

WAVERLEY BOROUGH COUNCIL

WOKING BOROUGH COUNCIL



The third tier of administration and most local is the town and parish councils. Not all of the borough and district councils in Surrey have this third tier of administration. There are presently over 80 parish or town councils in Surrey.  Some of these councils maintain their own cemeteries and may help to maintain their local churchyard. The records of burials in churchyards are found in the church registers. The records for burials or cremations in civic cemeteries are held by the district, town or parish councils.


A map showing Surrey’s BOROUGH AND DISTRICT COUNCILS



London’s growth become ever more rapid at the beginning of the C19th. Between 1889 when the London County Council was formed and 1965 when Greater London was created, London formally absorbed parts of the surrounding counties including major parts of north Surrey.
By 1900 the areas of historic Surrey now part of the County of London and London boroughs were

Battersea, Bermondsey, Camberwell, Lambeth, Southwark and Wandsworth

In 1965 more areas of Surrey became part of Greater London (with Battersea, Bermondsey and Camberwell merging with Southwark and Wandsworth) and forming the eight London boroughs of


CROYDON, KINGSTON UPON THAMES, LAMBETH, MERTON, RICHMOND UPON THAMES, SOUTHWARK, SUTTON AND WANDSWORTH


In 1965 STAINES and SUNBURY were transferred from Middlesex to Surrey. In 1974 these areas became part of the new Surrey borough of SPELTHORNE.



The British Towns And Villages Network website is very useful in helping to navigate a map of modern day Surrey, showing the ELEVEN SURREY DISTRICT AND BOROUGH COUNCILS and the individual places within them and the EIGHT LONDON BOROUGHS no longer part of Surrey.
 
The London Metropolitan Archives GUIDE to areas in Greater London Boroughs is useful in helping find where places are in which London borough today.



Use the website FUNERAL MAP to help with locating present day cemeteries and crematoriums in the area and then use this guide for further information and contact details for the local authority or company which manages them.
