Activities all afternoon

A chance to trace your ancestors with help from our volunteers. Find out if your ancestors are buried at Undercliffe, the location of the plot and any memorial inscriptions. For this you will need to know names and dates of burials.

Find out more about what our volunteers do in maintaining the cemetery and the research program. Why not help us maintain this very special place by volunteering.

Learn more about the cemetery itself, its history, the famous people that are buried there.

A chance to meet representatives from the Bradford Family History Society. Find out what they do and about their regular meetings. Also their publications and CDs with memorial inscriptions.

Bring your old family photos taken during Victorian times and see if we can reveal more details about them.

Stroll around the cemetery at your leisure. Try out our QR codes to reveal more details about the families behind the six listed monuments. You will need a smartphone or tablet with internet access and a QR code app for this. If in doubt ask one of our volunteers.

There will also be a morning event covering Bradford’s military heroes which starts at 10:00. See separate listing.
