City of London Cemetery Data Online

Burial registers for the City of London Cemetery and Crematorium have been available for viewing online for some while, and more are gradually being added. In total 600,000 people have been interred there, and the remains of over 30 London Church yards also placed on the site making a total approaching 1 million,

Only the first eight registers covering the dates 24 June 1856 to 23 January 1864, not 2 June 1861 as stated on the website, are currently available for viewing. They are not indexed so it you need to have an idea of the burial date, especially as the register images are large.

You can read more about these burial registers at www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/Corporation/LGNL_Services/Community_and_living/Deaths_funerals_and_cremations/burial_registers.htm or go directly to view the burial registers online.
