Churchyards and Cemeteries

The churchyard with its two accompanying council graveyards in Kitchener Road are huge and in parts overgrown. There is not a good record of where to find the people buried there. A transcription of monumental inscriptions in St Nicholas' churchyard is held by Great Yarmouth Library: this includes many headstones that have since been cleared away. 

The Market Gates Cemetery was used mainly by Nonconformists. There is a copy of the burial register for the period 1828 to 1864 on microfilm at the Norfolk Record Office. 

Burial registers for cemeteries in Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and Caister-On-Sea are on fiche at the Norfolk Record Office down to 1987. The original registers are at Great Yarmouth Town Hall.
