Highgate Society vice-president Michael Hammerson has dedicated more than five years to studying 1,300 British veterans who fought in the war between 1861 and 1865.
And he has discovered that dozens were laid to rest in north London burial sites, including Highgate Cemetery and West Hampstead Cemetery.
"I'm sure it will surprise people, and this is only a small proportion of them," said Mr Hammerson, a retired chartered surveyor and town planning consultant, of Highgate Village. "I would guess there are in excess of 45,000 over here [in Britain].''
Among the veterans Mr Hammerson has researched for the project is Adam Worth, who is thought to have inspired the character of Professor Moriarty in Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories.

Mr Hammerson said: "You find incredible people who are just like us, yet totally different.
...
Mr Hammerson is reaching out to residents with family connections to the war so he can help them to track down their graves.
He said: "It was really a personal interest to find these people but I am now publicising it to get people who had ancestors connected with the war, in America or England, to get in touch."

Highgate Society member Michael Hammerson has suggested that, should Haringey Council refuse proposals to develop the Highgate Garden Centre site, a community organisation could take ownership of the valuable land known as the Highgate Bowl.

The land, off Townsend Yard, would be designated as a community asset, meaning it would be maintained and run by members of the community for public use.
Mr Hammerson said: “The community would be free to use it for whatever they get planning permission for, but it would be to maintain the open character.â€

Postcard collection reveals bygone age of Hampstead Heath

Hampstead Heath - View from Parliament Hill 1924 - courtesy Michael Hammerson Toboganning, donkey rides or just an afternoon stroll, Hampstead Heath has been enjoyed by all since the mid-Victorian era, and now we have photographic documentation which reveals Edwardians spending leisure time on the Heath, much as many people of all ages do nowadays.

Local historian and member of Hampstead Heath Consultative Committee, Michael Hammerson has kindly made available his historic picture postcard collection of Hampstead Heath and its environs for digital copying by the City of London Corporation, which owns and manages Hampstead Heath.
The collection is an invaluable resource which will be of great value in managing the Heath and interpreting its historic, ecological and cultural heritage.
Bob Hall, Chairman of the Hampstead Heath Committee said: “We are very grateful to Michael Hammerson for making these pictures available.
...
Local historian Michael Hammerson said: “These pictures are a unique record of how the Heath has been a rural retreat for Londoners for over a century; but they also show people today, who think of the Heath as never-changing countryside, how dramatically it has in fact changed in the past 100 years.
