How to find information when tracing your family tree
Apply for a genealogy search
We do not have any records that are searchable via the internet but most of our records are available via our electronic registers.
The records for our six Borough controlled cemeteries and Mintlyn Crematorium are held at the Offices at Mintlyn.
If you wish us to search for a record please complete our genealogy search form.
To complete our genealogy search form you'll need to provide:
- as much information as possible, especially the name of the person
Once completed please post or email the form to the Mintlyn Crematorium.
Please allow six to eight weeks for the outcome.
To find out more information about tracing your family tree please go to the following websites. They link to pages at the Norfolk Records Office giving information on tracing your family tree, parish registers and census records. They also have information on the King's Lynn and Norfolk family history sources, giving local information about civil registration, census records, wills and much more.
