The following announcement was written by Deceased Online:
Deceased Online has added the first set of burial and cremation records for the London Borough of Lewisham and all records will be available at www.deceasedonline.com by mid-October.
Immediately available are the records for Grove Park Cemetery and Hither Green (aka ‘Lewisham’) Crematorium
When complete and online, the full Lewisham collection will comprise approximately 1 million records (nearly 400,000 names) and will include Brockley, Hither Green and Ladywell Cemeteries (in addition to Grove Park and the crematorium) dating back to 1858.
The new collection comprises:
- digital scans of original burial and cremation registers
- details of all grave occupants in each cemetery
- maps indicating the section in each cemetery for all graves
Lewisham is located in south east London and is the 14th London council to add its records to the Deceased Online website. When complete (and with some remaining records for Southwark to be added soon), there will be 60+ cemeteries and crematoria with approximately 4 million names and 8 million+ records for London on Deceased Online.
