Archaeologists to Digitise Burial Records Following HS2 Excavation

Archaeologists working on the HS2 rail link are looking for volunteers to help digitise the burial records of 57,639 Londoners who lived in the city in the 18th and 19th century.

The information relates to St James’s Burial Ground near Euston station, where more than 31,000 burials were excavated as part of HS2’s archaeology work between 2018 and 2019.

The archaeologists now intend to compare their findings with information contained in the burial ground’s records, in a bid to find out more about the site and the lives of Londoners at a time when the city was at the heart of an expanding empire.
