South London Missing burials and/or cremations

Postby SDV » Sun Dec 15, 2019 1:12 pm

I am trying to find a number of missing burials or cremations in the South London area with little success. I suspect that many of these are post churchyard burials, so parish registers are of little use. There does not seem to be a comprehensive site for tracing civil burials, just a host of civic and private websites. In the hope that someone might have access to the relevant records here is a list of my missing burials/cremations:

George LANE - d 10 Feb 1869 @ 29 Brooklands Road, Wandsworth Road
George Henry EVELEIGH - d 09 Aug 1879 @ 160 Camberwell New Road
Elizabeth EVELEIGH - d 03 Jan 1899 @ 76 Nine Elms Lane, Battersea
Thomas James EVELEIGH - d 16 May 1902 @ 76 Nine Elms Lane, Battersea
Rose BELLENGER - d 11 Mar 1902 @ 14 Alston Road, Tooting
Robert George WOOD - d 12 Dec 1927 @ 35 Wycliffe Road, Battersea
Annie BELLENGER - d 17 Aug 1935 @ 24 Letchworth Street, Tooting
William Albert BELLENGER - d 07 Mar 1936 @ 24 Letchworth Street, Tooting
Albert George ESSEX - d 17 Sep 1941 @ 56B Larkhall Rise, Clapham
Emma Amelia LANE - d 02 Apr 1942 @ 107 Denmark Road, Camberwell
Harry LANE - d 13 Dec 1943 @ 107 Denmark Road, Camberwell

South London Missing burials and/or cremations

Have you tried deceasedonline.com? This is the Central Database for UK burials and cremations. It is still a work in progress collating all the records. However, I did find several records in the index for Bellengers and Eveleighs in the area you are seeking. You might find some useful information. The basic information is free but there is a payment a copy of the original record.

Have you checked newspapers (try the British Newspaper Archive). I wouldn't necessarily rule out church burials, a lot of the cemeteries/crematoriums are not online and may be in the private sector now, needless to say both charge some big fees to check details but others are fine. Perhaps you need to do a check online on cemeteries/crematoriums for the area at these dates.

I have subscribed to deceasedonline for many years. Whilst it is great for parts of North London, it is poor for South London. In particular, it doesn’t cover Wandsworth or Lambeth.

ianbee - many thanks, you are correct about the date for Rose, a typo on my account.

Just a small point. I notice that the burials you found on Family Search are on a collection, entitled Surrey Parish Registers. Why don't these burials appear on Ancestry's collection of Surrey Parish Registers?

Hi
I guess the two collections aren't linked. FamilySearch have been building their Surrey collection up and including records for cemeteries such as Wandsworth, Brookwood, Streatham.
Not all years indexed for all cemeteries yet. Ancestry don't have those records.
