4. Family history searches

Request a family history search

We charge £20 to search a 20-year period for both Gravesend and Northfleet cemeteries.

We can search for all people of a particular surname during that period at no extra cost. For each additional 20 year period there is a charge of £20.

You can submit your request and make payment online using the link below.

If it's possible that the person was buried in a parish churchyard then there are some records available at Medway Archives. Otherwise, the Diocese of Rochester may be able to provide information on the parish churches.

If it's possible that the person was cremated then you could enquire with Medway Crematorium or Eltham Crematorium.

Please note the money is not refundable even if we are unsuccessful in the search.

If you know details you may be able to use the online maps to find a grave.
