The Herefordshire burial index comprises records from both the Leintwardine History Society and FamilySearch’s International Genealogical Index. This collection of records from England’s West Midlands county spans more than four centuries. A burial record allows you to complete your ancestor’s story.

To help your search we have provided a full list of all the parishes available in this collection in Herefordshire parish lists which can be selected in the Useful links and resources section.
