Deceased Online

Deceased Online has announced the addition of more London Cemeteries from the Royal Borough of Greenwich in South East London to its database. Deceased Online is the UK's only website for statutory burial and cremation records.
Greenwich Cemetery, located just a few miles from central London, dates back to 1865 and is described by many as the cemetery with the best panoramic views in all London. It's position on the edge of Shooter's Hill gives the cemetery a wonderful location with views across all of central London and sweeping right around to Crystal Palace. Greenwich Cemetery features probably the best views of any cemetery in London across much of the capital. There are hundreds of war graves and a fascinating Norwegian section. Greenwich Cemetery has nearly 94,000 burials many historically interesting and include:
  • 556 WW1 burials scattered around the cemetery and an impressive Great War Heroes Memorial commemorates over 260 of these
  • Over 120 WW2 burials
  • An additional 30 WW2 Norwegian burials, part of a beautifully maintained Norwegian section
Eltham Cemetery (aka Falconwood) is a small cemetery, dating back to 1935, attached to Eltham Crematorium, but features some interesting memorials and burials including Richmal Crompton, author of the best selling 'Just William' novles and short stories. the cemetery comprises 15,00 burials and data for all of these are now available on Deceased Online together with 210,000 record for the Crematorium.
Most of the records for both these cemeteries comprise burial registers, grave details and cemetery maps with grave locations as well as some memorial photographs.
All burial records for the London Borough of Harrow in North West London have been included. Harrow Council manages seven cemeteries and all their burial records are inlcuded in the Deceased Online database. The records comprise:
  • Digital scans of burial registers
  • Details of graves including the names of all occupants

The Deceased Online database for London now included 1.6 million records and this will top 2 million within the next few months as more cemeteries are added. among these are three more cemeteries for the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
