Crossrail's Bedlam Burial Ground Register project online

The following may be of interest to those with ancestors from London, England. It's an online searchable database of many of those who were buried in Bedlam (Bethlem) Burial Ground in the 16th and 17th centuries, a project produced as part of an archaeological excavation by CrossRail to remove 3000 skeletons at Liverpool Street Station, where the old Bedlam Burial Ground was based, and where construction work is now underway.

The project used 16 volunteers to trawl through old parish registers. A short video on their work is available at and presented below:

Partners involved in the project were London Metropolitan Archives and the Museum of London. For more on the project visit, whilst to search the database, visit
