Bacsa is most grateful for the photographs so far received, and we would be pleased to receive further photographs of cemeteries not yet represented in the Gallery or for which there only a few images. Between six and twelve images are usually enough to give a good idea of a cemetery’s condition. Ideally, each image should be no larger than 1 megabyte

What Bacsa does

We record the locations of cemeteries and monuments, and the inscriptions on headstones. We publish cemetery and church records containing names, inscriptions and biographical notes on individual tombs and gravestones. We support local people active in the restoration and conservation of European graveyards. Well over 100 projects have benefited from Bacsa funding.
