Tell me more about the graves...

Are all people listed on the grave details page buried in the same grave?

No, due to the size of some cemeteries there may be two or three identical grave and section reference numbers, which are found in different burial grounds eg Church of England, Roman Catholic and Non-Conformist.

Are all people buried in one grave from the same family?

Not necessarily, a number of graves are classed as public graves, which could have six or more people buried in them. To find out the classification of the grave you will need to view the register image where you can view the grave class.
