Useful web sites for Family Historians in Kirklees (i.e Huddersfield and District)

  Steve Whitwam's Family History website A valuable resource for for research, particularly in the Milnsbridge, Slaithwaite, Marsden and Scammonden localities. By Richard Horton. The origin of this work was the "St. John's Kirkheaton Churchyard Database Project" but recently (2014) this has been extended by including the 'St. John's Lepton Project', a 'St Thomas' Bradley Project' and a ' Lane Side Cemetery Kirkheaton' project.

Kirkburton Churchyard The principal aim of the Churchyard Team, as it is now known, was to create a traditional English churchyard that was not only the resting place of local inhabitants but a reminder of its history and even more a haven for traditional flora and fauna. The churchyard has been mapped, with graves entered as Marked or Not Marked, which meant it had no stone (but was a mound of grave shape), or the grave had some stone slab or surround with no inscriptions. The site includes an index to Memorial Inscriptions with both Name and Map search facilities.
