How BACSA works & how we help

Conservation. We help to conserve old European cemeteries.
Preservation. We promote preserving historic tombs and monuments.
Archiving. We record old cemeteries and the inscriptions on the graves.

Bringing together people with a concern for the European cemeteries, isolated graves and monuments in South Asia
