Trafalgar Cemetery
Gibraltar, United Kingdom

This cemetery, which can be found in the middle of town, was established in 1798 and first known as the Southport Ditch Cemetery. It was used for burials until 1814 when it fell into disuse. In later years it became the Trafalgar Cemetery, even though most of those dying from that battle were buried at sea.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
