Two Hertfordshire cemeteries added to Deceased Online

Deceased Online has added all 14,500 individual records for two cemeteries.

Hatfield Hyde Cemetery (Hollybush Lane, Welwyn Garden City, AL7 4JU) is the older and larger cemetery with most records dating from 1923 to 2010; there are a few earlier records and one from 1842.

Welwyn Hatfield Lawn Cemetery (Southway, Hatfield, AL10 8HS) is a relatively new cemetery, opened in 1984 and our records go from then until 2010.

The records available comprise:

  • digital scans of burial registers until 2004; thereafter, electronic records
  • grave details indicating all burials in each grave
  • cemetery section maps indicating the section location of each grave.

Other records for the county on Deceased Online include Dacorum (Hemel Hempstead) Council; Broxbourne Council (around the Cheshunt area); and headstone removal records from The National Archives for the closed cemeteries of Beechen Grove Baptist Burial Ground, Watford (from 1801) and Boxmoor Baptist Church, Boxmoor (records from 1840.
