St Bees Priory Graveyard & Records Database
This page is the gateway to many administrative documents held by the church, as well as containing links to the church and village web sites. A further link is to Atlantic Geomatics’ Burial Grounds Burial Management system (BGMS), which will in time supersede this site. Other documents will be added later but some of relevance only to church officials, require registration to view.
Currently much of the graveyard data is available, though work on this is continuing, particularly in respect of tying in the records with, where possible, the actual location of the grave. The BGMS site is more detailed in this respect.
Collating the graveyard data was a mammoth task, and we are grateful for the extraordinary amount of work put into this task by Stuart Nicholson of Whitehaven.
