With over 3,200 entries from one of Chesterton’s earliest undertaking businesses, this index contains basic information (decedent’s name, age, cause of death, date of death) to assist with accessing original records at the Museum.
Details are transcribed as they appear in original records; information in italics was added by the Museum for clarification. Question marks indicate that the original writing is illegible. Many records have no death or burial dates but an unidentified date that is listed in the “Remarks” column. For a scan or copy of original records, contact the Museum with the name and date as it appears in the index.
