The Graveyard Website is indebted to the Calderdale Family History Society for all of the burial information contained in the middle and south sections.

Calderdale Family History Society have a comprehensive database of Monumental Inscriptions covering 39 graveyards within Calderdale, on which they offer a search facility. Details of this can be found on their website or email their Search Coordinator at

The actual burial records, prior to 1887, have still not been found, so only those graves whose inscriptions can be read are included in the database. There are several thousand more burials in these sections, but as yet we do not have the information.

If you are interested in doing more research into the position of the graves in the ‘Unknown Section’, then you can download more details of the old grave rows and sections that we have gleaned from existing documents.

For instance, if you have an old grave reference, there are clues to where the grave might be. We have also colour coded the positions of first burials in graves. This gives some clue as to which areas were being used in particular years.

It is a large psd file, about 15 MB, and you will need to be familiar with a layers program such as Photoshop or Photoshop Elements to see the information.

If you spot errors in the database, please who will be pleased to correct them if neccessary.
