This section records the burial details of some of the men who died in pit accidents. Up to the 1850s all burials were usually in the local church yard but as the industrial revolution took hold populations of Nottingham and the County towns expanded very rapidly. The first municipal cemetery, Nottingham General opened in 1837, followed by the Church or Rock cemetery in 1856, though the smaller village cemeteries continued within Church grounds around the County boundaries. No cremations are noted they started in 1919 at Wilford Hill. The bulk of the first tranche I have taken is from on line sources. Ashfield District Council Cemeteries and Cemeteries Gedling Borough Council. Others are from parish records in Nottingham County Archives. To which I will add as and when I do further research.
