Horton Cemetery Burials 1902 to 1955 - Surnames Y


The following information was transcribed from microfilmed records by the volunteers of
Epsom & Ewell Local And Family History Centre (Links open in new windows).

Please note: that the cemetery was designed for just 900 plots but we have details for about 8450 burials! We are not aware of any additional land being used for the graveyard and no plan survives so we believe most plots will have been reused on several occasions. The grave numbering is both complicated and unclear. There are just over 3500 grave numbers in the register so some of the original 900 plots probably have been renumbered several times. We also know that some numbers have been used several times, usually identified with a suffix. There are about 3800 grave numbers with an 'a' suffix and nearly the same number with a 'b' suffix, but only 170 with a 'c' suffix and nearly the same number with a 'd' suffix. An example of the problem, taken at random, is grave number 1614 which was used twice on 15 January 1915 (with suffixes a and b), twenty five years later it was used on 19 March 1940 (suffix a) and the following day 20 March 1940 (not with suffix b but with suffix d), the following year it was used again 26 September 1941 (suffix c) and lastly on 03 October 1941 (not with a d suffix but with suffix b). It has been suggested that the suffix may indicate the orientation of the bodies in the plots with body 'a' laid with the head at one end of the grave and the head of body 'b' at the opposite end. (i.e. heads to toes), but we have found no evidence to confirm this.

To add to the above, many the entries in the original burial registers are not in any obvious order, and some of the handwriting is particularly difficult to decipher. Every effort has been taken to ensure that this alphabetical list is as accurate as possible but some errors are inevitable. If you think that an error has occurred then you can inspect the microfilm copies of the original documents at both the Epsom and Ewell Local and Family History Centre and at the Surrey History Centre in Woking but expect to spend many hours searching through the images. If you want someone to carry out this research on your behalf contact the relevant Centre but you may have to pay for the time it takes.
