Bramley Baptist Churchyard War and Remembered Graves Clean-up – Background:
Bramley (Zion) Baptist Churchyard covers 8 acres and is over 200 years old.
It is privately owned by the church with the vast majority of graves privately owned by the families that originally purchased the graves. With in the case of older graves there are no up to date contact details for current descendants of the owners.
A combination of size, subsidence and sheer scale of upkeep means that the graveyard away from the areas closest to the church is in a state of disrepair.
Included in the graves are around 80 that are either Official War Graves (white headstones) covering World Wars One and Two and what are termed “Remembered” graves that carry a memorial or inscription to a family member who died on service but either have no known grave or are buried overseas.
