Church of England National Burial Ground Survey

All Saints Churchyard, Ripley [CRG]

The Church of England is in the process of creating a digital map and database of all burial grounds in England. The database will be accessible through the Church Heritage Record. Full information is not yet available but the website does include data from two pilot projects.

The project is funded by the Church of England and began in 2021. The project team includes Historic England and Caring for God’s Acre. Technical support is being provided by Atlantic Geomatics.

Watch Joseph Elders, Head of Church Buildings Strategy at the Church of England describes the project on YouTube.
