History of the cemeteries

Farnham Urban District Council was the burial authority for Green Lane, West Street, Badshot Lea and Hale cemeteries until Waverley District Council took over in 1974. The cemeteries passed back to Farnham Town Council in 2003.

Cemetery records

We have burial records dating back to the 1870s. If you are researching your family tree and would like to see the cemetery records, you can make an appointment to view them at the Town Council offices. The records can show the date of the burial, the person’s full name and sometimes their occupation and place of death.
