The Beautiful Burial Ground

The burial grounds in the midst of our communities tell us about changing fashions and traditions, immigration and of lives both long lived and tragically short.

The Beautiful Burial Ground is a national project funded by the HLF which aims to inspire, engage and support interest groups, communities and individuals to learn about, research and survey the biodiversity and heritage of their local burial grounds. We aim to do this by offering a range of training events.

The Beautiful Burial Ground project is offering a FREE training session at Shropshire Archives, Shrewsbury on Tuesday 6th November 2018 to those interested in the stories told by our burial grounds.

The session will run 10:30am – 12:30pm, and it will cover an introduction to archives as well as how to use archives to investigate the lives and stories in your local burial ground. Booking is essential, to book your free place please get in touch with George at or 01588 673041.
