Church History

This Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded about 1934, and we understand it is still open.

Gloucestershire Archives document on Civil Cemeteries and Burial Grounds indicates they hold copies of registers of interments in Dursley Cemetery (also known as "Kingshill Cemetery") for the period 1934-1997. I understand it is also possible to request a search of registers held locally - details of which are available on Dursley Town Council website. Currently (2019) this service is free, and accessible via their "Service & Facilities" menu item.

Denomination

Now or formerly a Cemetery.

In most cases this will be a record of its original consecration.

Resources

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Dursley, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.

Search for other Places of Worship in Gloucestershire

Search Tips:

You can specify either a Place, or OS Grid Reference to search for. When you specify a Place, only entries for that place will be returned, with Places of Worship listed in alphabetical order. If you specify a Grid Reference, Places of Worship in the immediate vicinity will be listed, in order of distance from the Grid Reference supplied. The default is to list 10, but you can specify How Many you want to see, up to a maximum of 100.

You can further refine your search by supplying other search terms.

Please note the above provides a search of selected fields in the Gloucestershire section of the Places of Worship Database on this site (churchdb.gukutils.org.uk) only. For other counties, or for a full search of the Database, you might like to try the site's Google Custom Search, which includes full webpage content.
