Records for another of London’s most historic nonconformist burial grounds are now available on Deceased Online. The Spa Fields records range from 1778 to 1849 and feature all the registers from The National Archives (TNA) RG4 collection. Although a tiny area, the old Spa Fields site includes nearly 114,000 records. Located in Clerkenwell, the site no longer exists as a burial ground but is a park managed by the London Borough of Islington.
