Who's Buried Where in Britain?

Not only British People

The object of this project is to show where famous, notorious, well known and historical people are buried in Britain.

The people are listed in groups which will be added to, adjusted or split over time. These categories are not cast in stone and may well change as the project evolves.

The project will be split into a number of connected projects for different groups as including them all in one project will be too cumbersome. Links to those projects are included in the list below.

Please add information about the burial place of well known people to the list below. If the person has a profile on Geni please add their profile to the project and add the link in bold.
