All Saints’, Bramham

All Saints’ Church sits at the heart of the vibrant and friendly community of Bramham.  There has been a place of worship in Bramham since 915AD, though the oval-shaped churchyard (the only one of its kind in West Yorkshire) dates from Anglo-Saxon times. The present church building was begun in 1150AD, but despite being steeped in history, the most important thing about All Saints’ is that it is a living place of worship which is loved by its community and is often to be found at the heart of village life.

Accessibility:

While there are a number of steps up to church from the road by the lych gate, there is flat access from the road to the church from the far (east) end of the churchyard (with a few hundred yards’ walk through the churchyard to reach the church).
No toilet is available inside the church, though it is sometimes possible to arrange the use of the village hall toilets nearby (when nobody is using the hall).
A hearing loop is installed.
Limited roadside parking is available outside the church.

History, Archaeology and Architecture

Record of burials

Working in conjunction with a specialist surveying company, Atlantic Geomatics, we have created a valuable record of the burial ground at All Saints’ Church, Bramham

www.bramham.burialgrounds.co.uk

The record comprises a map, with a fully searchable database, which will enable local residents and family history researchers alike to identify the details of known burials in our ancient churchyard.

There is a simple user guide in the help section of the toolbar at the top right of the map

If you know the name of the person you are interested in then you can search for them by clicking on the magnifying glass at the top left of the map and entering the information you have. Alternatively, you can hover the cursor over the memorials identified on the map and bring up the details of the individuals associated with them. If you get a hit you can bring up details of the individuals, including a photograph of the memorial and the entry in the burial register.

A very substantial amount of information has been entered into the system.  There are well over a thousand entries in the registers.  In many cases the location of the grave associated with the register entry is not known; we estimate that only about 20% of burials are marked.

There are a small number of memorials showing on the map as “unknown” which means we are either unable to make out the name or names on the memorial or conclusively link them to an entry in the register. If you spot any errors or can shed light on any information in the system then please contact us at the email address below

If you have any comments or questions, please contact Neil Ferres at nferres1100@gmail.com
