A LOCAL HERITAGE INITIATIVE

Burial Records and Monumental Inscriptions

During 2008 members of the Bradford Family History Society transcribed the Baptist Chapel Burial Records and the graveyard monuments, and a CD with a searchable database is now available for purchase.

The CD holds transcriptions of 8630 internments between 27 June 1866 and 11 April 2007, detailing name, grave number and section of the graveyard. The data has been electronically sorted to provide a list of internments in each grave.

Monumental inscriptions and plans of the sections of the graveyard are also detailed.

A CD containing images of the chapel registers can be seen at Heaton Library and at the Local Studies Department of Bradford Central Library. The original registers are kept at Heaton Baptist Chapel, Highgate.

The project was undertaken with the co-operation of Reverend Tony Newnham, and was subsidised by BMDC Bradford West Area Community Chest.
