New burial index – Bunhill Fields, Bristol

Bunhill Fields (Redcross Street, Bristol) Burial Ground Registers 1805-1880
Perform an internet search for “Bunhill Fields” and you are likely see results for the Burial Ground in the London Borough of Islington. However, there is also a Burial Ground of the same name in Redcross Street, Bristol (now the site of St Matthias Public Park). Two recently discovered registers for the Bristol Bunhill Fields Burial Ground have been transcribed and published by our project team and are now available as a downloadable PDF file priced at £5.

The War Graves Photographic Project

The original aim of The War Graves Photographic Project was to photograph every war grave, individual memorial, Ministry of Defence grave, and family memorial of serving military personnel from WWI to the present day. However, due to its popularity they have now extended their remit to cover all nationalities and military conflicts and make these available within a searchable database.
