Indian cemeteries has now moved to a more reliable host (www.7host.com), so it should be accessible most of the time. I have also been able to add a few enhancements.
- Cemetery menu is now active, which means that it is automatically updated from the database, and it is quicker to load as there are no images in it
- The file size can now be given for the high resolution images. This means that users can determine whether want to download a 1MB image if they have a slow internet connection.
- Several bug fixes.

The following announcement sent to the RootsWeb India list by John Kendall represents the public launch of indian-cemeteries.org:
“After some time I have finally got my Indian cemeteries site up and complete. For those who don’t know, I went to India last year and had many requests to do look-ups at cemeteries. I was so shocked by the poor state of most of the cemeteries that I determined to record as much as I could and publish the results before they were lost. What has resulted is visible at http://www.indian-cemeteries.org.
I must stress that it is not an exhaustive (or entirely accurate) survey, because time and technology did not permit it. Particularly some of the writing is undecipherable from the photos which I took on my cheap camera.
However on the site are the photos of the monuments with transcriptions. Along with a name index (about 990 individuals) and regimental index, which record name, rank/position, regiment/department, date and place of death. The sites covered are:
