The UK pay-per-view website Deceased Online have announced the addition of almost 100,000 more burial records from South London. This latest update features four cemeteries from the London Borough of Merton, and includes burial records dating from 1883 up to the beginning of 2010 (although dates vary for each cemetery).
According to their website the cemeteries added are:
- Church Road Cemetery (also known as St Peter’s & St Paul’s Cemetery), Church Road, Mitcham, Surrey
- Gap Road Cemetery (also known as Wimbledon Cemetery), Gap Road, Wimbledon, London
- London Road Cemetery (also known as Figge’s Marsh Cemetery), London Road, Mitcham, Surrey
- Merton & Sutton Joint Cemetery (also known as Garth Road Cemetery), Garth Road, Morden, Surrey
The London Borough of Merton joins the boroughs of Brent, Havering, Islington and Camden in having records available on the website. It is not just about London though, there are records from across the UK, the most relevant for me being the Kent and Sussex Crematorium.
You can find a complete list of all the cemeteries and crematoria already included on Deceased Online at their website, they are also busy “digitising nearly two million burial and cremation records to add to our database, from 15 burial and cremation authorities around the UK”. There has never been a better time to look for dead people!
