I contacted Kirklees Council, Bereavement Services re Heckmondwike and Batley cemeteries and the searches they did for me were free of charge. They gave an excellent service. However, this was in 2004, so things may have changed! Their telephone number then was 01484 234060.

I see from your list of surnames that you are searching for Richards in Leic. and yorkshire. My 2 GGrandfather was a Richards and was huntsman in Badsworth. I believe he came from Leics. Somewhere around Staunton harold. Ring any bells?

Barnsley burials website

I have just found a website which lists burials for Barnsley.


Tokens are required and are £3.50 for 50 searches.

Re: Barnsley burials website

I also found the same website in the last couple of days.

Can I make a suggestion that may save a wee bit of money??.........Especially if you think you may have hordes of buried relatives in the Barnsley are cemeteries!!

After you have bought your tokens, look near the top of the page & click on Search Burials (it's between Home & Forum).

Then click on 'Cemetery'........pick the "all Barnsley Cemeteries" option.

Type in the "surname" you are looking for, but don't type in "First name".

I found that I got  4 pages of results with approx 10-12 hits on each page.

I would suggest that you carefully check each hit on the first page in the order that they are listed.  Then move onto page 2, check those hits. Move to page 3 & check etc etc.

As soon as you move from one page to another, your tokens are reduced.

So for the price of one token you could get many names and different Barnsley cemeteries.

So much more cost effective that putting in a specific name, surname & cemetery for each person that you may be looking for!!

I'm sure that we all like to save a penny or two in these credit crunch times!!

Oh another thought....perhaps if anyone has any tokens left.........and they think they won't use them up themselves,  they could offer to do some searches for other people wishing to discover if their forbears are in the Barnsley Cemeteries!!

You know what they say....."What goes around, comes around!!"

Happy discovering to you all!!
