London, England, Deaths and Burials, 1813-1980

This data collection consists of burial records from over 10,000 Church of England parish registers (including Bishop’s Transcripts) in the Greater London area, from the original registers deposited at London Metropolitan Archives as well as those formerly held by Guildhall Library Manuscripts section. A full list of the Church of England parishes in London can be found in the more help section. These have been arranged in two ways, alphabetically by name and alphabetically by modern London borough.

This collection also includes registers of deaths and burials that occurred in workhouses operated by the Boards of Guardians. The parish registers cover the years 1813-1906 whilst the Board of Guardian records cover the years 1834-1906.

Bishop’s Transcripts are copies of the original registers which were made annually and sent to the Bishop. They are particularly useful where original records either do not survive or in the case of many of the churches in the City of Westminster, are not held by London Metropolitan Archives. for more click here
