How To Check for Indexed Surnames

The alphebetic list at the bottom of this page allows you to select the first letter of the surname in which you are interested. The left hand frame will now display a list of surnames beginning with the chosen letter of the alphabet. This table lists each Surname and the number of occurrences of that surname in the database.

If you find an entry listing the Surname in which you are interested, select that surname.

Selecting (clicking on) that surname will produce a table listing each individule interred in the Abney Park Cemetery with that surname.

Each line in the table will contain the following fields.

  1. The Surname and either the Forenames or Initials.

    Because this is an on-going project, when the initials only are listed the forename(s) will be available as the entries are up-dated.

  2. Burial Date.

    This is the date of entry in the burial register. Because this is an on-going project. If the day is 00 then the month and year only refer to the first date entry in that register. The correct date of internment will be available as the entries are up-dated.

  3. Age of the Deceased.

    This contains 2 numerics and an optional character, or a non numeric entry indicate the following:-

    • "00" = Not yet entered in the data from the register.
    • "--" = Not used or Not specified in the Burial Register.
    • "st" = Stillborn.
    • "sb" = Stillborn.
    • "nb" = Newborn.
    • "adt" = Adult
    • "n/a" = Not indexed (transcribed) yet. Its coming at about 300 a day.

    The letter folling the two numerics indicate the following:-

    • "c" = Centuary over 100 years old by years given.
    • " " = Years
    • "y" = Years
    • "m" = Months
    • "d" = Days
    • "h" = Hours
    • "n" = Minutes
    • "s" = Seconds

  4. Burial reference number.

    This is the number in the burial register for numbers from 1 to 113828. For numbers above 113828 (113829 through 195217) they are the burials numbers in the registers marked as R/N 3829 to R/N 85217. (That is R/N nn = 110000 + nn) So to convert add 110000 inplace of R/N or subtract 110000 and write R/N in front of the number. (This may be just R in some of out listings)

  5. The section in the Cemetery where the grave is located.

  6. Identification of the source register index in which this entry is found.
