Find a Grave
With a team of skilled volunteers, our research request service allows us to help locate a grave making it a valuable service to the genealogist and descendant alike.
Since our inception, the Friends have have undertaken over 2,520 research requests for the public and financial members, a form of assistance that is without acknowledgement by the Cemetery Trust.
The Friends have produced our own on-line burial register of the Cheltenham Pioneer Cemetery and Cheltenham Memorial Park to ensure greater accuracy than the records held by the Cemetery Trust. Not only are there numerous names incorrectly recorded, there are also many burials not included. The program so far covers the Cheltenham Pioneer Cemetery, and we are progressively covering the Cheltenham Memorial Park.
The program allows you to search, download photos of the burial location and also view genealogical information including links with other persons buried in separate graves.
The program is accessible to non-financial members for basic look ups.
