Outrage at council charges for burial registers look-ups

Waltham Forest Family History Society has criticised its local council's policy of charging £38 for people to consult the burial registers within the borough's cemeteries, having not made any charges at all for the service over the last fifteen years. The graveyards affected include the Queens Road graveyard in Walthamstow and Chingford Mount Cemetery.
