Records - Cremations and Burials


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 Aberdeen Crematorium, Hazlehead. 


There are 17 cemeteries in Aberdeen and our records start from approximately 1900 onwards. 

A search for historical records can only be made as and when staff/time are available.  There is a fee for any search not related to an interment or transfer of lair.( See Burial Charges) Because our records are not yet computerised,  we must have an exact date of death, which cemetery you believe the deceased person or persons are buried and any other relevant information available.  If you are unsure about the date of death, please contact:  If you do not know which cemetery, try searching the obituary notices in the local paper for the time in question at .

Information pre 1900 may be obtained from the City Archivist located in the town House.  Contact:
