Records from The National Archives of removal of graves and tombstones from disused and closed burial grounds and cemeteries are being put online.
A new range of records from The National Archives – removal of graves and tombstones from disused and closed burial grounds and cemeteries – is being added to the Deceased Online website.
The first 105,000 records from nearly 200 sites across England and Wales are now available; tens of thousands more will be added over the coming weeks.

Deceased Online says: “We have made a number of changes and improvement to the website. New features include:
- Search by cemetery or crematorium within a county or borough;
- A coverage link in the top menu to make it easier to see which parts of the UK are currently included in our database;
- Better help is provided when the name searched for isn’t found, with easy access to our FAQ on the subject, and to hints on how to use wild cards.”
