All 430,000 burial and cremation records at Manor Park, London are now available online.
Deceased Online says: “With the addition of another 160,000 records, we have completed the digitisation of Manor Park Cemetery and Crematorium in Newham, East London. There are nearly 430,000 burial and cremation records for this historically important cemetery.
“The latest 160,000 records available now are for the period 25th March 1875 to 15th December 1898 and comprise burial register scans together with details of all interments in graves and grave section maps.
“What is both interesting and tragic is the sheer number of interments during this 25 year period, due to a combination of the teeming population and the high infant mortality rate in the 19th century East End of London.
“These newly-available records include some fascinating burials, including Jack the Ripper’s second victim Annie Chapman, Winston Churchill’s nanny and a 10-year old little hero who perished whilst trying to save a drowning friend.”
