All records for Kensal Green, one of the UKs most historic and celebrated cemeteries, have been digitized and are available on the website.
Located in Londons Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Kensal Green was opened in 1833 by the General Cemetery Company and is the earliest of the capitals major cemeteries pre-dating Abney Park, Brompton, Highgate, Nunhead, Tower Hamlets and West Norwood: collectively, The Magnificent Seven.
Kensal Green is home to graves for some of Londons most famous Victorians and Edwardians including Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Wilkie Collins, William Makepeace Thackeray and Anthony Trollope, a collection of royals 650 members of the titled nobility and over 550 individuals noted in the Dictionary of National Biography.
Earlier in 2013, Deceased Online digitized all records for Brompton Cemetery, managed by The Royal Parks, so Kensal Green becomes the second of The Magnificent Seven to have all records digitized and available online. In total, approximately 330,000 records for all burials and cremations up to December 2010 are now online (as at 1st February 2014) comprising the following:
- Digital scans of the original burial reference books
- Details indicating those buried in each grave
- Digital scans of the original cremation registers (up to 1993, thereafter, computerized records)
Later in spring 2014 we will also add maps of the cemetery which will indicate the cemetery section location of each of the graves.
