Locating the graves

The numbering used in the Burial Record does not relate to any existing plan. It seems to be inconsistent and unreliable. It is consequently very difficult to pinpoint the specific sites of the many unmarked graves. The Friends will do their best to advise you if you are searching for such a grave.

Those graves that are recorded in the list of Memorial Inscriptions have locations given on the existing Cemetery plan shown below. The Friends of Histon Road Cemetery have this list and again, if you need assistance in finding a specific grave, contact the Friends and we will do our best to help.

With reference to the plan, the cemetery is divided into 7 ‘compartments’ labelled A to G. Each of these is divided into vertical rows numbered from the top left. The plots are numbered consecutively within each compartment. Hence A.3.42 is Compartment A, Row 3 and is the 42nd plot in that compartment.
