Deceased Online adds further London records

If your ancestors moved south to the London Borough of Lambeth, records from Streatham Cemetery, now available on Deceased Online (www.deceasedonline.com), might help with your research. The cemetery opened in 1893 under the Metropolitan Burial Act of 1852, which was instigated after the cholera epidemic of 1848 to 1849.

Whilst no new Scottish records appear to be in the works in the foreseeable future, Deceased Online is currently working on further records from England's East Midlands, London, the West Midlands, and the South East.
