City of London Cemetery – Burial Registers

The City of London Cemetery is one of the largest municipal cemeteries in Europe and anyone may be buried there irrespective of City connections or religious beliefs.

Images of their general burial registers comprising 440,000 historic records dating from 24 June 1856 to 7 October 1955 are now available online.

The registers can be browsed by date but sadly there is no facility to search by name.

Berkshire Enclosures

Ancestors from Berkshire or a one-place study there?

Take a look at the New Landscapes: Enclosure in Berkshire site to learn more about the process of enclosing the common fields of the county of Berkshire between 1738 and 1883. 

Altogether approximately 160,000 acres, or approximately one-third of the total land area of the county, were enclosed by Parliamentary means between these dates. However, the process was not a steady one, and enclosure did not take place evenly across the county during that period.

New Landscapes provides access to historic manuscript maps and land award documents online.

Explore the site to find out more about enclosure and view digital images of the documents themselves. You can search by parish or search by map.
