Brighton and preston cemetery map
« on: Friday 01 November 19 11:58 GMT (UK) »
Hi
I'm visiting Brighton and Preston cemetery tomorrow to visit my Great grandparents grave.  Maria Lavinia and Louis Charles Berntzwiller. Does anyone have a plan of the cemetery please.  I have the plot number p1077.

Many Thanks

Jane

Thre's typically one at the cemetery gates.
Look for plot numbers on headstones and work from there.
If you got the plot number from deceased online, you can also buy a plot map from there.

Ok: So I see it's privately-run. Try contacting the owners today.
