Genealogists researching their family trees have been given a boost as the council has made its burial records going back to 1889 public.
Sutton Council has scanned and transcribed all the burial records from Sutton cemetery and Cuddington cemetery meaning people can now access them online instead of having to plough through old books.

Councillor Jill Whitehead, chairwoman of the council's environment and neighbourhoods committee, said: "This modernisation is much needed; the previous registers were old and could not have lasted a great deal longer.
"The records being placed online will allow a much greater access to our citizens and will facilitate quick efficient research.
"Given that this year marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War we expect many people to use this service too further research their ancestors who fought in the Great War"
The burial records from Bandon Hill cemetery, jointly managed by Sutton and Croydon councils, are also due to go online in April.
