Genealogical research

A number of our cemeteries are over 100 years old and our registers provide an important source of local information. Our cemetery registers are available for research during office hours by appointment.

Please note that searches are most effective if you have the correct date of death - without it, the search can take much longer and a small fee is payable.

Family research services

Milton Keynes Library run a family history service which has lots more information about genealogy.  

You might also like to visit the National Archives, based in Kew, which has census records, family, local and military history.  

Other records and certificates are held by The General Register Office, who have produced a guide on how to use its services.
