Interesting project here:

https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2018/jan/29/database-burial-grounds-england-wales-created

"The first national database to record all the natural and manmade treasures of burial grounds, from the giant Victorian urban cemeteries to little country churchyards, is to be created with a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund."

600,000 grant doesn't seem like much to collate every single burial ground in the UK!

Greetings!

Does anyone know if there are any plans to re-visit the clean up/transcription project over the coming summer months?

I would love to get involved!  ;D
