Finding a grave


Please make an appointment before coming to Abney to search for a grave.

Even with a plot number, graves can be very difficult to find. The ground around the graves is uneven and overgrown so can be unsafe, with low visibility.

Because of this we recommend that you are accompanied by someone from the Abney Park Trust team when looking for a grave.

To find out whether the person you are looking for is buried at Abney you can search an external database here. (This is an external database, not managed by the Trust.) You can also contact us and we can search our internal database.

As a charity we do ask for a £25 fee for a single grave search to help cover our costs (printing, staff time etc), and to maintain this service.

If you turn up at Abney Park without an appointment, unfortunately we may not be able to help you.

Contact the Abney Park Trust by email - or call 0207 275 7557 to make an appointment. 


We recommend searching for graves in autumn or winter when headstones are more visible.

Appointment days are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays between 10 am - 2 pm.
