Kensal Green is the second of London’s “Magnificent Seven” cemeteries to go online.
Deceased Online says: “Records for the oldest of the great London Victorian cemeteries are now available.
“The historic and prestigious Kensal Green Cemetery in West London, which shares its location with West London Crematorium, is home to graves and memorials for many Victorian luminaries, including over 650 royals and titled nobility, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Oscar Wilde’s mother, Dickens’ in-laws, the original W H Smith bookseller, three giants of literature – Thackeray, Wilkie Collins and Trollope – and thousands more of the famous…..and infamous.
“Burial records from 1833-1901 and cremation records from 1939-1993, featuring register scans and grave details, are immediately available, and the remaining records and grave section maps will be added shortly.
“Kensal Green Cemetery and its crematorium have served a large part of London for 180 years and, when digitisation is complete, over 340,000 records will be available. There are now over three million individual burial and cremation records for London available on Deceased Online.”
