Bramham Burial Ground

For the past 4 years a group of enthusiastic local historians have been working on the Bramham Burial Ground Management System, together with Atlantic Geomatics who have provided the scanning system and the data base.
We have copied and recorded the deaths from Bramham Church Registers from 1588 to the present day.
These number approximately 6000
After the Atlantic Geomatics scanning process we then photographed all the existing graves in the churchyard and matched them up with the burial register. There are hundreds of unmarked graves. There is still a great deal of work to be done on the entries and this will be stage two of a very labour intensive exercise, i.e. listing the occupation, where they lived and cause of death. On the early grave stones very often this information is mentioned.
After 1953 we have been able to use the grave diggers record and match up some of the unmarked graves with the burial register, as this was kept meticulously by Harry Sanderson and family for many years. If we can find a similar record prior to this date we should be able to match many more unmarked graves.
