Are you researching a relative whom you believe might be buried in Axbridge?
Our registers of burials in St. John the Baptist churchyard date from 1899. We also hold a record of all existing headstones (1493-2006).
Registers before 1899 are held by Somerset Archive and Records Service (see below for contact details). We do not hold local copies.
There is also a Town Cemetery with more recent plots as the churchyard is now closed for burials.
For specific enquiries, contact the following:
- St John's Churchyard
Please send details of names, as fully as possible, and date of death to:
Archive Enquiries, The Church Office, Church Steps, The Square, Axbridge, Somerset, BS26 2AP.
Note that the parish does not have an archivist and we respond to requests on a 'best efforts' basis. Please include an A5 postage paid envelope with your request.
