Deceased Online launches its Lewisham Collection of burial and cremation records for the large south London borough. If you have ancestors from Lewisham, Blackheath, Brockley, Deptford, Catford, Sydenham and New Cross you may find them here. In this blog post, I look at the life of circus horse trainer, Helmuth Barth, who is buried at Grove Park Cemetery - one of those featured in the collection.
