Discover your ancestors who were buried in the Greater London area between 1399 and 1992. The Greater London burial index may reveal your relative’s name, age, occupation, religious denomination and where they were buried. Included in these records are those of George Wombwell, the famous Victorian menagerie exhibitor, who was buried in Highgate Cemetery in 1850. The Greater London Burial Index is a collection of the Middlesex Burials & Memorial Inscriptions, South London Burials Index 1545-1905 and City of London Burials 1754-1855.

The supplied year range represent the minimum and maximum years available. However, for some parishes, there may be gaps within the provided range.
