Location of Cemetery
« on: Thursday 07 April 22 20:09 BST (UK) »
I have a funeral Warley pre 1900, the church in question doesn’t have a grave yard attached and but the notice in the newspaper says ‘Brentwood Roman Catholic Cemetery’  but where would this it?

There is one in Woodham Road which opens in 1926 so not this one.  There appears to be a small cemetery next to what is now the Catholic Cathedral but this appears to small for general use.

I keep coming across references to it but no actual address, maps have been viewed but nothing is leaping out.  Maybe another set of eyes can spot it.

Have you checked with the RC Church for a record of the burial.
The satellite view of the graveyard  would indicate its not that small .

Being a RC church the records are a little harder to access.

They’re not available online at Essex Records office.

A request has been submitted to the diocese, but as we are approaching Easter, a busy time for the church I don’t expect a prompt response.
