Manor Park Cemetery and Crematorium records release complete

From Deceased Online (www.deceasedonline.com)

Manor Park - all 430,000 burial and cremation records now available

With the addition of another 160,000 records, we have completed the digitization of Manor Park Cemetery and Crematorium in Newham, East London

There are nearly 430,000 burial and cremation records for this historically important Cemetery

The latest 160,000 records available now are for the period 25th March 1875 to 15th December 1898 and comprise burial register scans together with details of all interments in graves and grave section maps

What is both interesting and tragic is the sheer number of interments during this 25 year period due to a combination the teeming population of and the high infant mortality rate in 19th Century East End of London

These new records available include some fascinating burials including Jack the Ripper's 2nd victim Annie Chapman, Winston's Churchill's nanny and a 10 year old little hero who perished whilst trying to save a drowning friend
