guinea-grave detail

A few people have been talking about their concerns at not knowing just where they could now find details/records of burials re: Holbeck Cemetery now that the offices at Lawnswood have closed. I am pleased to say that one of our member/ supporters has managed at last to call into the Family Section, Leeds Central Library a week or so ago and after asking at the desk, she was pleased to be told that they now keep records on film for Holbeck up until 1980.

So if you live in the Leeds area and have the details of family/ dates of burials etc. you should be able to pop down with these in the near future.

Also Leeds Indexers have photographs of most of Holbeck Cemetery’s guinea graves which you can scroll through too.
