Why are you doing this crazy thing?

  1. My route to primary school went through a cemetery. I've always been interested.
  2. I got brought up on religion, which was all about avoiding death. How humans think about dying has always been interesting.
  3. Then I moved to London. What to do with our dead has been a problem for Londoners for at least 500 years. It's interesting.
  4. I love London. I tried to move away and had to come back: il me manquait la ville. Having a website about it is a good excuse to take pictures of it. It really is interesting.

Can I use your photos?
Maybe. Please contact me first. At very least, you will need to provide a credit and a link back to this site, but you will need my written permission before you use any photos. I don't like saying that. I'd much rather let everyone use them. But people don't credit, and that's not acceptable to me.

Can you find my ancestor? Can you send me a list of all burials in London?
No, sorry - there is no central list. Deceased Online is the closest thing; otherwise, many councils are now putting their cemetery records online. Try those sites, or Ancestry.co.uk.

  1. Hi, just wanted to say- very interesting site! I wondered, while I couldn't see it anywhere, if you accept photographs of cemeteries on your yet to find list? For example, I have some of Streatham Jewish Cemetery.

    Keep up the good work anyhow,



  2. I came across your site whilst researching Highgate. Very interesting! I was wanting to take my tripod into Highgate, but it looks like that won't be possible.
    Could you recommend somewhere that I won't get bothered if I have a tripod (it is getting harder in London)?
