Monumental Inscriptions, Cemeteries and Graveyards of Somerset

Image right - Bath Abbey Cemetery


The aim of this project is to gather together information regarding cemeteries and graveyards in the county which either have available transcriptions or have been photographed and transcribed.


Please update the project by adding links to any available monumental inscriptions or pages where images of the graves/cemeteries can be seen - mostly Billion Graves or Find a Grave.

Links to pages that have no entries are marked ✘.

Those links with records have no ✘ (blank, or the number of entries in some instances).

To participate in any project


- you do need to first be a collaborator or collaborating with a collaborator- so please join the project using the request link under "actions" at the top right of the page. Visit Geni Wikitext, Unicode and images which gives a great deal of assistance.

Somerset & Dorset Family History Society

Monumental Inscriptions records have been compiled by the Somerset and Dorset FHS and donated by other people over many years, but at present there is no overall index of individuals.

There are approximately 400 parishes and/or graveyards in Dorset and most of these have been transcribed to date and are held by the Society.

The Society's volunteers can search the database for you. Available records have been marked ✣. For details of research charges see their Research Centre.
