Wembdon Road Cemetery Dissenters Register

1853 to 1902 available

The first 67 entries of the Dissenters register were only partially complete. One of our Archive Volunteers has undertaken a reconstruction of these entries from other sources, providing much useful additional information for genealogists.

1853 to 1856 Reconstruction available

1903 to 1977 in progress


These entries give the name of the deceased, family connection / occupation, last abode, age at death, burial date, the officiating vicar, the grave number and the cost of interment.


If you are local to Taunton and would like to join us in the fun of transcribing the remaining years please contact our transcribing team.


For a modest fee we also offer a research service which can identify the exact location of most burials in the cemetery. For further details please press Contact Us below with your enquiries
