Follow Friday - Search for Non-Conformist burials

From the mid 19th century, Abney Park Cemetery became the principal place of memorial for prominent London dissenters (Congregationalists, Baptists and other Non-Conformists). Before this, the burial ground at Bunhill Fields had served a similar purpose.

Your blog posts are extremely helpful, and this one in particular caught my eye. I have made a note to check these sources. I am researching a Richard GIBLETT, 1753-1829, originally from Frome, Somerset, who was allegedly buried at Bunhill Fields in Nov 1829. I suspect that other non-Conformist family members may be there too.
Hi Judy,

Richard Giblett was indeed buried at Bunhill Fields on 5th April 1830, aged 77.
Annie, thank you so much for the GIBLETT information. I really appreciate your help.
