Ross-on-Wye Town Council has invested in new software to enable easier access to the burial records of the Town Cemetery in Tudorville.

Cemetery Searcher is an online cemetery map and search facility which enables the public to easily search digitised burial records to find ancestors, as well as any other people of interest, and locate their grave or memorial on a digital map.

Use the GPS Locate tool to locate graves using your smartphone’s GPS.

Using the unique search platform, burial plots can be quickly located and highlighted on the map. The site can also be accessed on your smart phone which enables quick and convenient access to burial records and map. The map will be updated every two years to include any new information.

The addition of this resource to our website provides free searchable information which can be accessed from anywhere. We’re pleased to be able to offer this service which we hope will be of benefit to family history researchers, genealogists and others with an interest in the Town Cemetery.

You can visit the search facility here: https://www.rosstc-herefordshire.gov.uk/about-ross/cemetery-map-searcher/

Ross-on-Wye Town Cemetery, which is owned and maintained by the Council, was opened in 1945 for full burials and interment of cremated remains.
