The London Digitalisation Programme at present only covers parish registers or Bishop Transcripts deposited at the London Metropolitan Archives or the Guildhall Library. Registers deposited at Essex Record Office or the London borough of Waltham Forest Archives are not included.

NON-CONFORMIST BURIAL REGISTERS NOT HELD AT ESSEX RECORD OFFICE



At the start of civil registration the government reached an agreement with most non-conformist 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 non-conformist records are held at The National Archives with only microfilmed copies of Essex non-conformist registers at Essex Record Office. 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 and THE GENEALOGIST
The full list of church registers and separate non-conformist burial grounds held at THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES in RG4 and RG8

THE CATHOLIC NATIONAL LIBRARY at Farnborough Abbey holds some listed transcripts of burial registers.

Essex Record Office holds deposited Catholic church registers which you can search for on SEAX.

A GUIDE TO BURIALS IN ESSEX




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. 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 Essex.


Many churchyards in rural areas throughout Essex 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 Essex, 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 cremation may require a wider search which could include adjacent counties.

CIVIC CEMETERIES



LOCAL AUTHORITY ADMINISTRATION IN MODERN ESSEX



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


BASILDON BOROUGH

BRAINTREE DISTRICT
 
BRENTWOOD BOROUGH
 
CASTLE POINT BOROUGH

CHELMSFORD BOROUGH

COLCHESTER BOROUGH

EPPING FOREST DISTRICT

HARLOW DISTRICT

MALDON DISTRICT

ROCHFORD DISTRICT

TENDRING DISTRICT

UTTLESFORD DISTRICT


The third tier of administration and most local is the town and parish councils.  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 parish map of almost 300 parishes remaining in modern day Essex from the ESSEX COUNTY COUNCIL website.
 

The Unitary Authorities of SOUTHEND-ON-SEA and THURROCK are now separately administered authorities and are no longer part of the county of Essex (since 1998, though in the case of Southend-on Sea it was also exempt from country council control between 1914-1973).



The British Towns And Villages Network website is very useful in helping to navigate a map of modern day Essex, showing the TWELVE ESSEX DISTRICT AND BOROUGH COUNCILS and the individual places within them and the separate Unitary Authorities of SOUTHEND-ON-SEA and THURROCK and the FIVE LONDON BOROUGHS (BARKING AND DAGENHAM, HAVERING, NEWHAM, REDBRIDGE and WALTHAM FOREST) no longer part of Essex since 1965


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.
