Boyd’s London Burials parish list

Boyd's London Burials coverage is strongest for the parishes in the cities of London and Westminster and south and east Middlesex. There are three parishes south of the Thames in what was Surrey (Bermondsey, Camberwell and Clapham) and four from north Kent (Deptford, Greenwich Hospital, Lee and Lewisham). Finally, East Ham and Little Ilford in what was then Essex are included.

Boyd initially intended the period covered to encompass the years 1538-1853. Why 1853? Because burials in the inner London churchyards and burial grounds, such as Bunhill Fields, were discontinued for health reasons at various dates in the 1850s and no further burial registers were maintained. In fact, many parishes in the index are only represented by burials up to 1754, 1812 or 1837 and some are even earlier than this. On the other hand, two go some way beyond the cut-off date: Twickenham to 1872 and St. Paul's Cathedral to 1871.
