St Mary's or Battersea Rise Cemetery
« on: Tuesday 27 June 17 21:47 BST (UK) »
I have been doing some research which has included this cemetery. I contacted Wandsworth Borough Council's bereavement service at http://enablelc.org/bereavement/about/ and they have kindly sent me a plan of the cemetery and also a complete set of grave locations within the cemetery.

To find the grave number I needed, I visited the Wandsworth Heritage Service housed in Battersea Library www.wandsworth.gov.uk/homepage/215/local_history_and_heritage  The archivist there was a great help and I was able to find the entry I needed in the film 'Battersea Cemetery Burials' which contained the burial registers.

Find a Grave also has a number of transcriptions from surviving stones www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2249461

Specific grave numbers to help with location in the cemetery can be found in the burial registers.

Below is the main plan of the cemetery which shows the different sections/blocks. The following posts include the individual blocks with a map of the graves. The cemetery is noticeably full (truly full up!). Be aware that the numbering system for the graves is not in order sadly and can be particulary random. You will need to really study each section to try and find the grave number you need.

To be able to include some of the grave maps here on RC, the size of files is reduced for some of the images. If you have a problem reading the numbers (and who can blame you  ::)), just send me a PM with an email I can use to send you a larger image that should help some (although it is still hard going...).
