Kensal Green Cemetery Records now online

Kensal Green Cemetery Records now onlineWoo Hoo !!!!! DeceasedOnline have given us all a lovely Christmas present of the Kensal Green Cemetery Records. Only a genealogist would know how exciting this is !

I visited Kensal Green a couple of years ago and it is a fascinating place for those with interests in family history or the way the Victorians created a huge industry out of death. The cemetery is one of the most prestigious burial grounds in London, mainly due to the internment of Prince Augustus Frederick and later his sister Princess Sophia. Everyone who was anyone in London at the time wanted their last resting place to be near such illustrious company.

The burial records now available dateKensal Green Cemetery Records now online from 1833 – 1901 and the cremation records 1939 – 1993. The balance of records will go online very soon. When completed there will be 340,000 entries for genealogists to search. With two of the “Magnificent Seven” cemeteries now online I wonder if DeceasedOnline will be adding more in the future?

Wikipedia has a good page on the cemetery with an extensive list of notable burials and cremations and also a an interesting page on the Kensal Green area.

    Hi Linda.
    I was wondering if you could put me in touch with an OPC for Suffolk. I am trying to track down an Uncle and i cannot find him anywhere. I have all of his siblings but he is a mystery.

    Regards.

    Keith Mitchell.

    • Hi Keith,

      Sorry for the delay in my replying to you, family matters have taken me away from the website for nearly 6 months.

      There is no Online Parish Clerk for the county of Suffolk at present, I would suggest that you contact the Suffolk Family History Society who may be able to assist you.

      Regards,
      Linda
