Cemetery records are a complimentary record to the more commonly used church and civil death/burial records. The records come in several different forms from headstones to sextons records. Cemetery records are especially useful when there are gaps in death/burial records.

Background[edit | edit source]

There are many different cemeteries in the city of Copenhagen. Each cemetery has its own records and own customs of burial. For common burial customs see Denmark Cemeteries. Most cemeteries were located on the grounds of the parish church. Other religious and occupational cemeteries are scattered throughout the city, and have different records.
