Deceased Online adds Burial Records for Bandon Hill Cemetery, London Borough of Sutton

Burials at Bandon Hill Cemetery, Wallington, in the London Borough of Sutton, which commenced in 1900, are now at deceasedonline.com. Up until January 2012, the period covered by this database, there are 32,724 entries. Of those 125 are also in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission database, 55 for the First World War.

A newspaper report suggests the authorities were particular about who was buried. The Western Daily Press of July 14, 1950 noted an application by the Croydon Group Hospitals Management Committee to exhume the body of a Croydon general labourer believed buried by mistake at the cemetery in place of the body of a retired Wallington accountant.
