Greenwich Cemetery Records online

Deceased Online Family History

Deceased Online will be adding half the records for Greenwich cemetery to their database from tomorrow 14th September, the remaining records will be added in a couple of weeks time. Apparently Greenwich has hundreds of WW1 & WW2 graves so this addition will be of interested to family historians from other areas of England and elsewhere.

The company has also announced that next week they will be adding all the records for Eltham Cemetery, also known as Falconwood Cemetery, the Eltham Crematorium records have been online for a while so this will complete the set.

Good news all round for those with people in the Greenwich area!

Deceased Online Genealogy

If you haven’t visited the Deceased Online webpage then you should, it’s a great place for getting access to the records for those ancestors who were buried in cemeteries rather than churchyards. Cemeteries are either owned by private companies or by councils and their records can be held at the cemetery or in offices which can be quite a distance from the cemetery.

Deceased Online have partnered with cemetery owners and are putting the burial records online. There is a fee for looking at the original scan, but it isn’t huge and often much cheaper than locating the burial record yourself. Also some cemetery owners charge a search fee so you end up paying anyway!

The company now have a blog and a Facebook page so that everyone can keep up with what’s been added to their collection. Below are the links to their website, Facebook page and Blog.
