London Burials Index 1538-1872

Tuesday, 2nd December, 2008

Over 32,000 names have been added to the London Burials Index 1538-1872 with St Leonard Shoreditch Burials.  You can search them on The Origins Network.

The London Burials Index, containing records of over 300,000 burials, combines Boyd’s London Burials, an index completed by Percival Boyd in 1934 to “a few of the burials in the London area” (in fact over 240,000), Cliff Webb’s London City Burials (over 35,000) and St Leonard Shoreditch Burials (over 32,000).

The records include the last name, first name, age, year of death and the burial ground (parish). While Boyd’s entries were restricted “as far as possible” to adult males and only occasionally show the age, the London City and St Leonard Shoreditch Burials records cover all burials – men, women and children – and nearly always show the age.
