I hope they've done a better job than they have with Chingford Mount Cemetery amongst this collection - http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=9041.  There are a lot of missing folios including for a couple of my direct ancestors.  I've been manually though the images and they're not there. :-X

EDIT - well I'm disappointed by the Chingford Mount screw up, but I've just found four missing burials in City of London & Tower Hamlets, including two direct line, so am feeling a bit more amenable towards Ancestry. ;D

Well pleased, and a lot happier than with the issues with Chingford Mount Cemetery on Ancestry, I've so far found 13 direct ancestor burials and quite a few sidelines too. ;D

Thank you for alerting me to the  release of these records.  Twenty one direct ancestors found so far from 1861 to 1965, with only one transcription error (my g-grandfather, boxing champion, Richard "Harry" Paul was 90 not 30 when he was one of the last to be buried at THC on 11 December 1965).
 
Kenneth Greenway - who looks after the nature park at "Bow Cemetery" as it remains known locally, will be looking forward to a rush of visitors trying to locate their ancestors' graves.

I recall that there were two ladies who spent the second Sunday of each month transcribing the inscriptions at Bow Cemetery.  A massive task.  Not sure that they ever made these available on-line or elsewhere, but they and Ken were fantastically helpful in guiding me to the long overgrown and lost graves of my father and grandparents.

Might take a while to scan all these burials as they are scanning the books not the fiche, the fiche is a complete muddle of consecrated and non consecrated burials, I have spent hours in the LMA looking, thanks from me as well for alerting me to the online burials.

I found a bunch of Scriven ancestors in this data set.

My ggg-grandfather died in Hackney and was buried all the way in Chingford cemetery. He was poor so why he ended up there I have no idea.

Cheers, Romilly.
