Winterton Asylum Cemetery
Winterton, Durham, England

Salters Lane near Sedgefield, Durham England

Contributed by Dave Ollerton, Apr 12, 2003 [david.ollerton@sky.com]. Total records = 22.

From Sedgefield take B 1278. Look for the old hospital on left, cemetery is on the right.

There were not many stones left in this cemetery. I suspect some have been removed. As I read the tombstones I found some have fallen down. The Chapel in the grounds is unused and all boarded up.

I visited this cemetery on Apr 08, 2003. This is a complete transcription of all existing headstones.

    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.
