The project to record headstone inscriptions in Cockermouth Cemetery began in the Autumn of 2004.
Gravestones have been recorded for All Saints Church Rooms and church graveyard and Allerdale Council Cemetery. Records can be searched free of charge online via cemetery or by surname.
All the headstone inscriptions in the old part of the Cemetery have now been recorded.
Inscriptions in the remaining part of the Cemetery (over the bridge crossing Tom Rudd Beck) will be added to on an ongoing basis.
These inscriptions will prove a valuable resource for both family and local historians.
