Deceased Online completes Brompton Cemetery project

Brompton Cemetery's 205,000 records are now online, the completion of Deceased Online's digitization project of all records for one of  London's most renowned cemeteries. The records, burial register scans, grave details, cemetery section maps for each burial and, photos of memorials (as available) date back to the first burials in 1840 up to 1997.
If you have London ancestors, even if you don't think of them as well to do, it's worth checking the Brompton records which you can do at Deceased Online and find a name and burial date for free. Amongst the records of the celebrities I found a first cousin three times removed, a stationer, and his family at Brompton, well removed from the North London and East End cemeteries where closer relatives lie in unmarked graves.
According to the company "Over 2.5 million unique London burial and cremation records now available on Deceased Online......featuring over 7.5 m data items of people who lived and died in the capital."
