Burial records

To access burial records please make a request by email or letter. You cannot access the records in person at Mortonhall Crematorium.

Your request must include the

  • name of deceased
  • exact date of death
  • last address of deceased, if known.

There are a number of privately owned cemeteries in Edinburgh, which keep their own records, so we may not be able to provide the information you are looking for.

Payment is non-refundable if no information is found.

Finding a date of death

If you do not have the exact date of death for us to search our records, you can check on the General Register Office for Scotland website.
