Deceasedonline.com adds Cambridge, Gainsborough and London (Brent) Cemeteries

UK site deceasedonline.com has just added approximately 220,000 records for: Cambridge City, Gainsborough (in the county of Lincolnshire) and two cemeteries in London, Wembley and Willesden.

You can do a free search without payment. Details on the additions are:

For Cambridge

Cambridge City Crematorium, Huntingdon Road, Girton, Cambridge, CB3 0JJ.

Approximately 32,000 burial and 143,000 cremation records are available, with a mixture of register scans and computerised records. Maps showing the exact locations of graves and digital photographs of headstones are also expected to be added.

Newmarket Road Cemetery also known as Cambridge City Cemetery - Added 23 February 2010
Burials numbered 1 to 31,912, dated 3 June 1903 to 28 June 2005, are available as burial register scans in various formats at between 10 and 20 entries per scanned page. Subsequent data is available only as fully computerised records. In some cases data is available in both scan and computerised form. This has been done where each source contributes different valuable information, e.g. death and denomination (and sometimes occupation) in the computerised record, and death registration detail in the scan.

Cambridge City Crematorium - Added 23 February 2010
Cremations 1 to 104,953, dated 21 December 1938 to 28 June 1996, are available as cremation register scans at 8 entries per page. Cremations from 29 June 1996 are available only as fully computerised records and there are no associated register scans.

Huntingdon Road Cemetery
This is a new cemetery. Data for this cemetery will become available from next year as computerised records only.

Histon Road Cemetery
The Histon Road cemetery was managed and run by Cambridge City Council until 2007. It has since been passed to The Friends of Histon Road Cemetery, and the records for Histon Road cemetery and Mill Road Cemetery are held at Shire Hall. The records for this cemetery are not available on Deceased Online.

Mill Road Cemetery
The records for Mill Road Cemetery are held at Shire Hall, and are not available on Deceased Online.

For Gainsborough

Gainsborough House, 18 Parnell Street, Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, DN21 2NB.

Approximately 24,000 burial records are available, with a mixture of register scans and computerised records. Maps showing the exact locations of graves are also expected to be added.

Gainsborough General Cemetery also known informally as Cox's Hill Cemetery - Added 22 February 2010

Burials numbered 1 to 23,930, dated 1 September 1875 to 23 October 2009, are available as burial register scans in various formats at between 8 and 20 entries per scanned page. Subsequent data is only available as full computerised records.

For the London Borough of Brent

Willesden Old Burial Ground (St Marys) - Added 22 February 2010

12,373 burials dated from 1865 to 6 October 2006 are available, as scans of the grave registers. There have been no further burials to 31 December 2008. Maps should be available at some time in the future, but a release date has not been determined. The information on the scans includes owner and owner address where applicable, together with details of others burials in the same grave. When a successful search shows further information available, this will often show both "Grave details and 'n' other burials" and "Burial register scan". The scan is actually taken from the graves register, and viewing the "Grave details and 'n' other burials" will add no further information, except a best effort at transcribing the names of the persons buried.

Wembley Old Burial Ground (St Johns) - Added 22 February 2010

1,461 burials dated from 28 March 1877 to 24 May 1977 are available, as scans of the grave registers. There have been no further burials to 31 December 2008. Maps should be available at some time in the future, but a release date has not been determined. The information on the scans includes owner and owner address where applicable, together with details of others burials in the same grave. When a successful search shows further information available, this will often show both "Grave details and 'n' other burials" and "Burial register scan". The scan is actually taken from the graves register, and viewing the "Grave details and 'n' other burials" will add no further information, except a best effort at transcribing the names of the persons buried.
