Advice is freely available on all aspects of Burials and Cremations within Aberdeen City, for example:

  • Purchase of burial lairs and cremation casket lairs
  • Interment bookings
  • Memorial facilities
  • Searches of burial and cremation records

We have 17 cemeteries in Aberdeen and our records start from approximately 1900 onwards. Appointments should be made before a search of our records can be undertaken. Information pre-1900 may be obtained from the City Archivist located in the Town House.

We hold records of all persons cremated in Aberdeen since 15th March 1938 to the present day for both the old crematorium previously at Kaimhill and for Aberdeen Crematorium, Hazlehead. There are also Books of Remembrance that can be viewed at Aberdeen Crematoriumand the Hall of Remembrance, Kaimhill Road.
