Church Records

Welcome to the Briercliffe Society Church Records Database.

Records currently available

(Please note: The records found here are transcriptions. We do not hold any church records.)

Baptisms for Church of Briercliffe (St James the Great) from 1841 to 1900, marriages from 1843 to 1900 and burials from 1841 to 1894 are now complete and online. Other records currently available, although incomplete, include marriages for St Peter's in Burnley and St Bartholomew's in Colne and also births and burials at Haggate Baptist Chapel.
There are also many Nutter records online. These were kindly submitted by Annie29750

Burnley Cemetery

Burnley cemetery will search their burial records for members of the public. If you decide to use this service, you must provide a name and approximate date of death (an exact date of death would be even better). Burnley cemetery did not open until 1856.
