Highgate Cemetery: National Burial Grounds Survey

Highgate Cemetery, one of London’s Magnificant Seven, can now be searched for burials as part of the National Burial Grounds Survey.

While not yet complete, burials can be found directly on the map or by name, age or burial date using the search tool. There’s a user guide. Find 2,341 Smiths, including variants like Arrowsmith and Shoosmith as well as double-barrelled Smiths.

The National Burial Grounds Survey shows examples of two other projects: St Giles, Ashtead, Surrey, and  St Mungo and St Kentigerns, Caldbeck, Cumbria.

  1. Very cool. Alas, my one known burial there (my 3rd great-grandmother, Maria) is in a pauper’s grave.

    It will be interesting to see how this project develops.
