DeceasedOnline has announced the completion of the Manor Park Cemetery & Crematorium records. The records span the time period 25th March 1875 to January 2010. Manor Park is unusual in the fact that it has been owned and run by the same family since it establishment in 1875. This cemetery is well cared for and is still in operation, making it easy for those whose ancestors are buried there.
Annie Chapman one of Jack the Ripper’s victims is buried here along with Winston Churchill’s nanny showing that the cemetery was open for all regardless of social standing.
DeceasedOnline are currently digitising 2.6 million burial and cremation records to add to their database, from 16 burial and cremation authorities around the UK. 1.7 million further records have been digitised from another 18 authorities and are due to be added this year. Plus they are in serious talks with a further 94 authorities about bringing nearly 12 million more records to the website. So lots to look forward to !
