SEARCHING FOR LOCATION OF FAMILY GRAVES

Occasionally, people doing research into their family tree have obtained information from this link and then request that we aid them in finding the graves in the churchyard.

We need to make it clear that the national church allows us to set fees for any assistance in searching through our grave plans in order to locate graves and that for 2010 these are set at £19 for the first hour or part thereof and £16 for the second hour or part thereof. If you would like to avail yourselves of our assistance please write to Phillip Williams at the Church Office, Church Street, Whitstable, CT5 1PG with the details you require and a cheque for £19 payable to All Saints DCC (standing for District Church Council). Or if you are an overseas visitor please bring £19 cash with you on the day. Thank you.

Plans of the graveyard are not open to unsupervised access by members of the public and so if you wish the plans to be searched it is necessary to use Phillip who keeps the plans in one of the church cupboards.

If a second hour becomes necessary in the search Phillip will inform you. Phillip holds details of grave locations so even if the headstone has become illegible or has worn away completely, he will be able to advise you of the location of the grave in the churchyard.
PLEASE NOTE: Phillip will only be able to locate a grave once you have obtained information from the registers at Canterbury Cathedral archives. We have no stored information of details of deaths at the church so you will need to send him the names of the deceased and the dates of the death or he will not be able to locate the graves. Thank you for your understanding!

Of course you are welcome to walk around looking for graves free of charge and we would recommend you explored that route before writing to Phillip.

We are sorry we do not actually hold the registers themselves. These are held at Canterbury through the above web link.
