Thailand cemeteries, mostly from the greater Bangkok area.  Will all have burials with information on people who will have been born and/or died before and after the change of the name of the country from Siam to Thailand.

For those cemeteries that have Thai language headstones, BillionGraves needs help from those who can read Thai and romanize the names and data. That will make it readable to a wider audience of researchers looking for ancestors buried in the more local ones. Four of the below are primarily expatriate burial sites such as those who were part of various military units, or who were seafarers or other foreign citizens who died in or near Bangkok, or died at sea. Go to Billiongraves.com to register for the site and index those particular Thai-language headstones and see the Wiki articles BillionGraves and BillionGraves Index (FamilySearch Historical Records) for additional information about BillionGraves.
