I found loads of my relatives on there (Islington Cemetery) but it doesn't give you the section and grave number which you need to know to find the actual graves. But I found some info online which says Islington Council are planning to upload that information by February next year, so maybe I'll have a trip down to London to visit some graves next spring!

Kate, I would think they will provide the information - I had two lots of information for my Bond ancestors.
Firstly, the page from the burial register.
Secondly, this:

I have contacted them (Islington Cemetery) before to get the info but I found so many of my relatives I would be embarrassed to send them so many names to look up!

Default New Records for Aberdeen

http://www.deceasedonline.com/

From their newsletter -

"Deceased Online, the UK's only website dedicated to statutory burial and cremation records, has increased it's database with the addition of a further 105,000 burial records for Aberdeen City. Deceased Online already has nearly 25,000 burial records for Scotland's third largest city so this will increase the data size to almost 130,000.

The new data is for St Peter's Cemetery and Churchyard for the period 1830 - 1951 and comprises scans of the original burial registers and details on occupants of graves. The data represents approximately 70% of all burials within the Cemetery and Churchyard for this period and others will be added over the next few months. Further records before 1830 will also be included on Deceased Online later this year.

The existing records for Aberdeen City on www.deceasedonline.com are for Grove Cemetery, Nellfield Cemetery, Old Machar Churchyard and St Clement's Churchyard.

Eventually there will be nearly 200,000 burial records for Aberdeen City on the website and further areas of Scotland will also be added during this year. "

Joan, I just got the same e-mail! I wonder if any of my Scottish lot are on there?

I wanted to correct their spelling! Wait until Gwynne spots "it's database"!

It's temporarily unavailable! I was in the middle of browsing some results for one of my surnames and it couldn't cope any more. I think everyone got the e-mail at the same time.

Ooh, they seem to have added the grave references for Islington Cemetery at last, and I still have some unexpired credits!

It's great to see more records added even tho not for the areas of my research.

Wish they would give an idea what the 'Nearly 2 million further records are due to be added from another 13 authorities' covers, I suppose it's just a matter of wait & see.
