Monumental Inscriptions

Recording gravestone inscriptions in local cemeteries and burial grounds

Our dedicated MI team has transcribed and recorded gravestones and memorials in various cemeteries and burial grounds in the Broughton District. The work involves onsite visits, manual recording, digital recording, mapping grave plots and publishing reference materials.

The most recent site nearing completion is St Paul’s Churchyard, Pentre Broughton. Transcriptions are almost complete and the project is now entering the digitising and publishing phase.

Oral Histories

Capturing reminiscences from members of our community to record life in days gone by

The oral history team has undertaken training to learn how to use recording equipment and employ the best interview techniques to capture the reminiscences of our community members.

The recordings are being transcribed and digitised so that we can make them available to anyone with an interest in life in Broughton in days gone by.

We are always on the lookout for volunteers who would like to chat with us and allow us to digitally preserve their words and memories. Please contact us if you can help us to build up this invaluable resource for future generations.
