Friends of Raikes Road Burial Ground

With kind support from Skipton Town Council.


The Burials section provides some background on those interred in Raikes Road, their families and the experience of those researching their history.  


At this stage this takes the form of an occasional series of articles generously provided by people researching their family history.  To view the articles click on the links shown below or use the People menu.  In future we plan to provide more information on all those who are buried in the Raikes Road Burial Ground.  This work is currently ongoing and still in development.
