Braintree District Council handles the disposition of bodies that expired within the limits of the Council, and which there are no other living persons willing to assume responsibility. If there is no next of kin to claim the body, the Council arranges for a public funeral. If the decedent had made their final wishes known regarding burial or cremation, the Council will comply. Otherwise, the remains are buried in a public lot with no burial marker.

Funeral expense are taken out of the decedent's estate. If there are any remaining funds, those funds are transferred to the Treasury Solicitor, and publicized through the Bona Vacantia Division. Browse these records at, "Unclaimed Estates".

    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.
