One of BACSA’s key objectives is to record the names of the persons buried in cemeteries so that there will be a written memorial even when, as will sadly be inevitable in many cases, the gravestone or even the entire cemetery will have disappeared. A series of Cemetery Record Books contains the results of this work for over forty cemeteries. Many are still available from BACSA Books (address above). All may be consulted in the British Library, the other UK copyright libraries, and the Society of Genealogists.

BACSA will continue to publish new record books when it has accumulated sufficient data on a cemetery to justify publication. A digitised index to all the cemetery books has been created and uploaded into our burials database which you can check to discover whether you have an ancestor buried in a cemetery covered by a Record Book.
