Cemeteries in Sweden
Begravda i Sverige

This CD contains the records for over 5.36 million individuals buried in Sweden and some of the records include maps of the cemeteries. Churchyard administrations were invited to contribute their information and over 2300 cemeteries across Sweden (about 70%) complied. Even though not complete still the information is very good for those in the database.

The database may give information about the following and can be searched by any of these fields or any combination of fields. 

  • Person number/birth date 
  • First/last name
  • Place or address at death
  • Occupation/title
  • Death and/or burial date
  • Cemetery
  • Cemetery location
