Graveyard Records

We are in the process of transferring the records for burial within the Church graveyard from 1888 to the present day onto a database.  There are over 5000 records so the work will take about a year.  As we enter more we will update the report on this page.  We have currently completed from 1888 to 2015.

Please use the link to view the current report (16-8-2020).

On 4th November 1968, due to a compulsory purchase order for the widening of New Hey Road, the reamins from 30 graves were removed and reburied in the existing Church yard, or the remains were cremated. This report shows where the remains are now buried. The orginal pages of the grave owners book relating to the relocations are here - Page 1; Page 2; Page 3.

Commonwealth War Graves

The Church Graveyard honours the 8 men of the Commonwealth forces who died in the First and Second World Wars, and ensures they will never be forgotten - further information can be obtained from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

Burials took place in the graveyard prior to 1888, but burial records for those years have been misplaced over the years.  In 1992, Huddersfield and District Family History Society published two booklets which listed grave inscriptions (this piece of work had taken over 5 years to complete).  These booklets are available from the publications drop down box on the website of the Huddersfield and District Family History Society.
