A group of enthusiasts interested in the history and condition of the Old Cemetery in Southampton.
The new website of the National Federation of Cemetery Friends.
This website and it's contents are based on the book by Colin Clark and Reuben Davison "In Loving Memory - The Story of Undercliffe Cemetery". Undercliffe Cemetery contains an incredible array of people and professions, Mayors and Lord Mayors, wool barons, MPs, surgeons and clergymen and many thousands of ordinary folk who toiled through life's ups and downs and found their last resting place in Undercliffe. Like many cemeteries around the country, this one has gone through a period of neglect, but is now been restored, and there is a high level of interest in restoration and research.

A worldwide project and a fantastic website: The Gravestone Photographic Resource project is an attempt to provide a much needed on-line resource for family historians. The project aims are as follows: 1. to digitally photograph grave monuments worldwide that are currently legible 2. to extract all legible personal information (name, age, date of birth, date of death, relationship) from each image 3. to publish all legible personal information on an internet database and make this data freely available 4. to email copies of any grave monument image free of charge to anyone requesting a copy 5. to lodge at appropriate public record offices collections of images appropriate to that area 6. to encourage local groups to maintain, photograph and record grave monuments
