Cemetery, Funeral and Cremation Records

These records are used to identify surviving family members. Chinese and other non-Christian cemeteries are particularly valuable due to a dearth of other records.

Among this record type can be found:

  • Lists of gravestone burial records
  • Exhumations
  • Cremations
  • Sextons records
  • Obituaries
  • Funeral memorials

The earliest records date from 800 AD and generally contain the deceased's name, age, death and burial date and place, birth date and place. They sometimes identify immediate family, relatives, and previous generations.

Records can be found in district and municipal archives, church archives, libraries, Chinese community associations, cemetery offices and Buddhist temple archives.

Both Jewish and Christian burials are found the Bangkok Protestant Cemetery and the Jewish Cemetery.

These records are also available on FamilySearch.
