The City of London Cemetery has a record of every burial that has taken place since its opening in 1856. The London Metropolitain Archives (LMA) are gradually placing images of the register pages online, starting in 1856. Entries from 1856 to 1955 were not indexed. The online images on the LMA site can be called up only by knowing the relevant month and year.
This page, which is not in any way connected to the LMA, allows you to search by name and obtain dates and burial numbers, which can then be used on the LMA site. All care is being taken in transcription and data entry but no guarantee is made about completeness or accuracy.
There are currently 5002  records transcribed, covering June 1856  to March 1859.
