Over a million burial and cremation records from the London Borough of Islington are to be made available online.
The Deceased Online website is adding the following records from Islington and Camden Cemetery Services to its database:
Approximately 1,000,000 burial and 54,000 cremation register records are expected to be made available over a period, with a mixture of register scans and computerised records. Maps showing the exact locations of graves and digital photographs of headstones are also expected to be added. Initially approximately 70,000 records have been placed online from Hampstead and Trent Park cemeteries. The other cemeteries are Islington and St Pancras, which share a large site with around 900,000 burials. The Hampstead and St Pancras cemeteries are associated with Camden Council. The Trent Park and Islington cemeteries, and the Islington Crematorium, are associated with Islington Council.
