None of mine there, but it's interesting to read anyway, it would be a real 'find' for someone who had one of the families listed.

This is a handwritten list of 686 boxes and lead coffins removed from the crypt beneath St George in the East Stepney for reburial at Brookwood cemetery in 1960. Many date back to the 18th century.
