The Shropshire burials augment findmypast’s extensive parish record collection. These records contain the details of around 800,795 burials that took place in over 270 different Shropshire parishes. These records are published online for the first time in association with Shropshire Archives.

The Shropshire burials can include useful biographical information such as the full name of the deceased, the date of their death and burial, their age at death, their place of residence, religious denomination, and their spouse’s first name, father’s first name and mother’s first name.

Where possible we have calculated year of birth based on reported age at death.
