Cemetery Records

When a Mr Ian Aitken-Kemp who lives near Lockerbie came to Egremont to carry out some ancestry research and finding out that the headstones in Egremont cemetery had never been transcribed, he kindly offered to do this work (at no charge) as he has done so in many other graveyards.

The result of Mr Aitken-Kemp’s hard work led the Town Council to commission the printing of 30 A4 booklets containing the transcriptions (though not verbatim) of older headstones in Egremont Cemetery and is available for people to purchase at a cost of £5 plus postage.

To order a book or for more details, please contact the Egremont Town Council
