Searching our burial records

Burial statistics

We are responsible for four of the Cemeteries within the Braintree District. These are:

  • Bocking Cemetery, Church Lane
  • Braintree Cemetery, London Road
  • Halstead Cemetery, Colchster Road
  • Witham Cemetery, Manor Road

Information not held by us

We do not hold information on:

  • Burial statistics for non-council run cemeteries
  • Cremation statistics
  • Cause of death 

We consider information held on the interment of ashes to be separate to cremations. Interring ashes is the burial of cremated remains and considered a commemorative event.

Cremations are not conducted by us, as we do not own or run a crematorium. Therefore we hold no information on figures for cremations within the district.

Full burial figures
