These parish registers date back to 1538. Along with parish registers, you will find burial registers from Ford Park Cemetery and Torquay Cemetery. The Victorian Ford Park Cemetery was established in 1846 and opened in 1848. Torquay Cemetery opened in the mid-19th century and is a listed site by English Heritage. You can find burial records from both the consecrated and unconsecrated ground.

Each record contains an image or a transcript of the original record or both. The amount of information contained can vary, but you could find out the following about your ancestor:

  • Name
  • Age
  • Birth year
  • Death year
  • Burial year
  • Burial date
  • Parish
  • Denomination
  • County and country
  • Archive and reference
These records cover burials for most of the Anglican parishes in the English county of Devon and are published as a result of Findmypast's partnership with Plymouth & West Devon Record Office and the South West Heritage Trust. The collection also includes cemetery records from the Devon Family History Society.
We would also like to acknowledge the assistance of volunteers of the Devon Family History Society who have transcribed many of the original registers, housed at the record offices in Barnstaple and Exeter. Additional records are available in Plymouth and West Devon Record Office.
