In each case it is advisable to book space on a computer before you visit and contact details for all three offices can be found on the General Enquiries Archives page.

Staffordshire Record Office:All cemeteries
Stoke on Trent City Archives:Stoke-on-Trent City and Newcastle Borough cemeteries

The information recorded in the registers differ from cemetery to cemetery. No burial register entries will record the cause of death: this information is on the death certificate only. Some registers record a grave location, others simply provide a grave number.

The Archive Service's ACRE project to film cemetery registers was funded initially by the Heritage Lottery Fund and subsequently by the County Council and the Friends of the Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Archive Service. The filming was carried out by Worcester Record Office.
