Online Records

We have been researching, transcribing, and photographing records relating to burials in the Leeds area for a number of years. Initially, the records were transcribed and published on a CD known as the “Leeds Burial Project”. Due to the volume of data, and work involved, it became necessary to transfer it to an online database.

With approaches for information about people from outside the Leeds area, the database coverage is expanded.

Thank you to our army of unnamed volunteers who have made this possible.

Please remember when registering the password must be:

  • a Minimum of 8 characters
  • Must contain 4 or more unique characters
  • Must contain 2 or more Digits and Symbols
  • Must include a mixture of Upper and Lower Case Letters

Existing Yorkshire Indexers members will need to re-register, if they have not already been given access to the new Database

  1. I tried reregistering and then searching then it didn’t recognise my password so I had to change it then it said my email is already registered and won’t let me sign in with my email and my password 🤷🏻‍♀️
    I’m trying to get help but no reply.

  2. This is a new website, to gain access to the data you will need to register on the site, previous passwords etc willnot work.


    1. Hi Mike

      I have tried to register and am told my email address is already registered. I used the ‘forgot password’ button to reset the password but when trying to log in it tells me i am not recognised.

      Do you have any suggestions please?

  3. Hi
    I have been directed to the website by Alun Pugh who very kindly helped me with research on family members in Beckett Street Cemetery.
    I finally managed to get into the site after some initial faffing during registration but where do you enter the name of the person you are looking for?
    You know the kind of thing
    First name
    Date of birth / death
    Key words.

    It’s probably very obvious but I am a dummy at technical stuff.
    Ex Burmantofts now Mombasa!

  4. When you “sign in” you then have to enter the “Online Database”. The click on the icon for Municipal Cemeteries, Select Leeds and District from the Area drop-down menu and then Burmantofts Cemetery from the Cemetery drop-down and enter the rest on your details from the appropriate selections.


    1. Hi, I am having difficulty navigating this site and so I hope you can help. I followed instructions as per an earlier comment to Robert Thomas, but cannot find any drop down menus, nor can I type in any information/details in order to search for a name, year etc. I am hoping to find Warley Cemetery – can you help with this?

      1. Hi Jax,
        We only have 20 entries for Warley Cemetery, mainly to do with war graves and they are all in the Gallery Section of the website.
        Log into the site, then from the left-hand column select “Gallery and Maps”, from the resulting drop-down menu select “Gallery”, in the “Area” box select Calderdale, then in the “Cemetery” box, select Warley which is the very last entry. YOu will be present with the 20 images that we have, click on any one of them to expand the entry.

        Hope this helps.

        All the best
