Nottingham Collection

This week, Deceased Online expands its Nottingham Collection with the addition of records from the early Victorian cemetery, Nottingham General. Enter Nottingham's General Cemetery from Canning Terrace and be prepared to step back in time to the late 19th century. Like many of the Victorian cemeteries in the Deceased Online collections, Nottingham General was designed to take the burden from parish churches whose graveyards had become overcrowded. Also, like many other Victorian cemeteries, this was administered by a newly-formed body, the Nottingham General Cemetery Company (1836) . The Grade II listed gatehouse , the chapel and the adjacent almshouses were built between 1836 and 1838 by S. S. Rawlinson . Burial registers were kept from the opening date of cemetery in 1838. Concerns were raised in the 1920s that this municipal cemetery was now overcrowded and from 1929 the cemetery was closed to new burials other than those who owned burial rights. Headstones in

Highgate Cemetery Visiting News

Unique opportunity for visitors to one  of london's magnificent seven Cemeteries inside The west cemetery If you have ancestors buried in Highgate Cemetery's West Cemetery, you may have found it difficult to visit their graves. In recent years, visitors have been allowed into this part of the cemetery by guided tour only.  This summer, as an experiment, Highgate Cemetery is offering visitors the opportunity to experience Highgate Cemetery West on their own, without a guide.  Numbers are limited to preserve the tranquillity.  This will be possible on Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets go on sale 5 weeks beforehand, so it is worth checking back later if the date you want is not yet listed.  Tickets will not be sold at the Cemetery. If you turn up without a ticket, you will be refused entry. And t ickets cannot be changed or refunded.  The cemetery is divided by a main road between the  East and West Cemeteries . The East Cemetery has different visiting arrangements and can usually b

Agecroft Cemetery, Salford

This week, I focus on one of the cemeteries featured in our  new collection from the historic industrial city of Salford (now in Greater Manchester) Above: The Victorian mortuary chapel clocktower at Agecroft Cemetery Agecroft Cemetery and Crematorium is situated in the Pendlebury area of Salford. Opened in 1903 in response to overcrowding at nearby Weaste Cemetery, Agecroft covers 45 acres. The cemetery originally had three chapels, Church of England, Roman Catholic, and nonconformist. The Catholic chapel was pulled down, and in 1957, the former nonconformist chapel building was converted  into a crematorium . On the left is a photograph of the disused Victorian mortuary chapel clocktower. This has been listed by the Victorian Society. I will be exploring Salford in the Second World War in detail next week. However, visitors to Agecroft should look out for the stone memorial to the seven-man crew of Lancaster bomber PB304. The aeroplane crashed in Regatta Street, Agecro
