The Family History Group of Settle District U3A, under the leadership of Sarah Lister, has carried out extensive research into all the burials since 1839. Their researches have revealed some fascinating facts about the lives of local families over the last two centuries, including one of the sadder aspects of 19th century life – the high infant mortality rate.
From her researches, Sarah has published these two fascinating books about some of the inhabitants of our churchyard.
The Settle Graveyard project run popular Graveyard Tours throughout the summer months in Settle and now, by popular request, also in some of the neighbouring graveyards.
