Military Burial Record Online

Greenwich Royal Hospital genealogy

At The National Archives, Kew there are housed burial records for military cemeteries around England, I bet a lot of people including myself had no idea these records were there. Anyway we will all be able to access them because DeceasedOnline have scanned and indexed them and are in the process of uploading thousands of these records. The records date back to early 19th century and amongst the cemeteries are included

  • Greenwich Royal Hospital
  • Sandhurst
  • Haslar RN
  • Royal Victoria
  • Sheerness Dockyard

plus quite a few more whose locations haven’t been revealed yet. More details will be available soon on the website.

Other news from DeceasedOnline is that grave plans for seven of the West Yorkshire cemeteries that were recently uploaded are now available and also that cemeteries in Northeast Yorkshire are coming online soon. Just wish I had family in Yorkshire !
