The cremated remains of anyone who lived in or was connected to the parish of Little Eaton can be interred in the Churchyard. For families that do not have an exisiting family grave, there is a Garden of Remembrance. A fee is charged for the preparation of the plot and permission to bury cremated remains there.

The Burial of Ashes at St Paul's

The churchyard at St Paul's opened when the present church was built in 1791. It is now closed to new burials, although we can still bury in existing graves and inter ashes into our Garden of Remembrance.

As the Churchyard is now closed, most of the burial records are stored at the County Records Office in Matlock and not at the church. They have the registers for burials between 1790-1990.  They also hold records of baptisms 1790-1973, marriages 1862-1964, and banns 1862-1980.

A visit can be arranged with them or you can pay them for research at £11 per 30 minutes. They can also be contacted on +44 (0)1629 585347 and via email or via order forms "church register search form" found at where payment can be made via credit card.

Their address is:-

Derbyshire Record Office & Derby Diocesan Record Office,
County Hall,

Alternatively, some Little Eaton Parish records can be obtained from Ancestral Archives of Derbyshire,
