Records for all of the burials within the historic Nunhead Cemetery, in the London Borough of Southwark, are now available online.
Deceased Online says: “Opened in 1840 and originally known as All Saints Cemetery, Nunhead is one of the “Magnificent Seven” early-Victorian London cemeteries, regarded as the finest examples of gothic architecture. This is the third of the Magnificent Seven cemeteries with records on Deceased Online: Brompton Cemetery and Kensal Green Cemetery, both in South West London, have all their records available.
“There are nearly 300,000 people buried in Nunhead and the range of nearly 1 million records available includes:
- digital scans of original registers;
- computerised records for more recent burials;
- grave details indicating all those burial within each grave;
- maps indicating the square in the cemetery where the graves are located with the vital square number and grave number.
“This wonderful cemetery, with many listed monuments and memorials, has large parts designated as a nature reserve, which provides lovely walks and a perfect habitat for wildlife but these areas are unsafe to access beyond the paths.
“Further cemeteries will be added for London Borough of Southwark Council in the coming weeks. Southwark is the 13th London council to add its records to Deceased Online and another council will add its records in September. There are now 60 burial and cremation sites in London with records on Deceased Online featuring over 3 million names and approximately 7.5 million records.”
