Description

Historically, Ladywell and Brockley cemeteries were separate entities (for more information about their history, visit http://www.foblc.org.uk/). Although still in use, the cemeteries are considered like a park by some of the locals. Although not as atmospheric as the nearby, better known Nunhead cemetery, it remains is a very diverse and interesting burial ground. Graves date back to the mid-19th century. Parts are overgrown and currently not accessible. Some gravestones are no longer decypherable or are badly damaged due to erosion, pollution and war damage (the cemeteries were hit during the Second World War and it is believed there still are unexploded bombs). For those of you transcribing from overseas, information from the civil index of births, marriages and deaths for England and Wales may help you decypher the gravestones. The index can be found on ancestry, findmypast and http://freebmd.rootsweb.com/ (free access). Local registration districts include Lewisham, Greenwich, Deptford (from 1930), Camberwell, Woolwich and Southwark (from 1901). This cemetery is already registered with many images, please do not use this duplicate. http://billiongraves.com/pages/cemeteries/LadywellandBrockleyCemeteries/164344#cemetery_id=164344&lim=0&num=25&action=browse
