Findmypast adds London area burials

Burial records from Brompton Cemetery, one of Britain's oldest and most distinguished garden cemeteries, are in the most recent update to Findmypast. T
As it's Twelfth Night it's appropriate to note those at Brompton  who achieved greatness, Nova Scotia born Sir Samuel Cunard, and Dr John Snow credited with bringing an end to the 1854 cholera outbreak in London. Some others were born great and yet others had greatness thrust upon them.
With about 205,000 people interred there were plenty of ordinary folks too with burials in common graves, especially young children.
There are 645,301 records, both transcripts and images of documents digitized from the original register held by the UK National Archives at Kew in series WORK 97.
These records also continue to be available through Deceasedonline.com/ which has over 8 million London cemetery records in its collection.

An additional 19,619 records are added to Findmypast's Greater London Burial Index. The total of records is now 1,690,022 within over 300 Anglican and non-conformist parishes across Greater London.
