Billion Graves Index on FamilySearch

Billed as "an expansive family history database of records and images from the world's cemeteries, all tagged with GPS locations" this name index of  980,915 burial records is now incorporated into FamilySearch.org.

The contents are dominated by US cemeteries. You'll also find entries for the UK including 2564 records and 1840 images for Kensal Green in London. There are scattered entries from Canada and elsewhere. Not all the entries are found searching from FamilySearch that surface using Billion Graves directly.
