National Archives (UK) burial records from closed cemeteries added to Deceased Online


The first tranche of burial records from another set of data held by The National Archives has been added to the Deceased Online website, www.deceasedonline.com.

The dataset of transcriptions, RG37 ‘Removals of graves and tombstones’, comprises records from over 200 closed cemeteries and burial ground across many areas of England and Wales. The total records will comprise over 175,000 names/burials, with the first 105,000 now available on the website, dating back to the 17th century. Full details can be found on the website at this link:

This is the third set of data from The National Archives now available on Deceased Online the others being the historic Brompton Cemetery in London and a collection of military burial records from many sites across the UK.
