The object of the overall 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.

Please add information about the burial place of well known statesmen 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.
