Burial records for two Cotswold cemeteries and records for a London crematorium have just gone online.
Deceased Online, which has made these records available online, says: “Over 16,000 burial records for two cemeteries managed by Cotswold District Council are now available.
“Chesterton Cemetery, opened 1872, is located in the ‘Cotswold capital’ Cirencester and Stratton Cemetery (in Stratton, just outside Cirencester) has records from 1888. All records for both cemeteries are available online, and comprise digital scans of burial registers, details of graves and maps indicating the locations of many of the graves.
“Cotswold District Council is a large area serving a region that stretches from Chipping Campden in the north down to Tetbury in the south-west and covering towns such as Moreton-in-Marsh, Bourton and Stow-on-the-Wold.
“All 210,000 records for one of London’s biggest and busiest crematoria are now available online. As one of the capital’s largest cremation facilities, it services a large part of south-east London including two London Borough areas, Bexley and Greenwich, together with the Dartford area in North West Kent. The records for Eltham comprise the most comprehensive range that Deceased Online has ever included for a crematorium.
“Digital scans of cremation registers typically include: name, address, marital status, cremation number, date of cremation, date of death, age, sex, denomination, occupation, applicant and death registration details. In addition, for the first time, we have included the map locations of ashes scattered or buried in the Crematorium grounds (where available).
“There are now nearly 1.5 million records for London on Deceased Online together with records for nearby Tunbridge Wells Cemetery and Kent & Sussex Crematorium.”
