I really need to spend some time with the Framfield burial registers

10 Dec

It looks like I have very strong roots in the parish of Framfield, Sussex. This is very pleasing because not only does it seem a nice place and it is quite easy for me to visit, but also it is quite easy for me to access the records for the parish.

The original registers are held at the East Sussex Record Office (ESRO) in Lewes, East Sussex, but I already have easy access to indexes of the baptisms and marriages for the parish, thanks to the hard work of the Sussex Family History Group.

The one area I am lacking is burial records. I really need to pay the ESRO a visit and spend some serious time with the parish registers. I know it is not going to be a quick exercise, although I think the ESRO already have an unpublished index/transcription for some of the registers.

There must be hundreds of relations buried at Framfield, for which I have only found a few gravestones from my visit earlier in the year. I can see I am going to have to spend several hours in front of a microfilm reader extracting records in the new year.
