Deceased Online now has Brookwood Cemetery Records

This is major. The first addition to Deceased Online this year. It’s huge from a cemetery that long resisted making its records available online.

The largest cemetery in the UK, Brookwood Cemetery in Surrey, also known as the London Necropolis,  now has records available to view on www.deceasedonline.com.

The records comprise approximately 243,000 individual burial records. Dates are from 1854 to 2016. There are burial register scans for all records and details of other grave occupants. Many records also have maps showing the approximate location of the grave.

There is a free quick search available. You need to have purchased at least one pay-per-view voucher within the last six months, or have a subscription, to perform an advanced search that allows you to specify the cemetery.

Brookwood holds the graves of 325 Canadian dead from the First World War and 2,404 from the Second World War.
