The Burial Register proper dates from the opening of the Church and Cemetery in 1865. Prior to this, Registers of deaths of Parishioners appear to have been maintained for certain periods, these can be viewed at the bottom of this webpage - use this link! 

Prior to the formal opening of the Cemetery at St Mary's in 1865 parishioners who died were, in the main, interred in the Church of England cemetery, although the early Registers indicate some burials at Weldbank and at Leyland. The Euxton Parish Church (C of E) Registers identify 166 Catholic (or Papist) interments up to 1865, although it seems clear from the early St Mary's baptismal registers that many other Catholics were interred at the Parish Church. The St Mary's website contains details of the known Catholic interments at the Parish Church here - the "Lancashire Online Parish Clerks" website contains a full transcription of the Parish Church burial records.
