You will find all three of these surnames on the home page under family trees, well worth a look. Also it’s worth doing a search under church records.

Great , thanks. I had a look at the trees.found my Heap ancestors going way back on there.But couldn’t quite match Crabtree and pickles with ones on there.although from briercliffe.I will have a try with church records.thanks. I know some relatives are buried in haggate baptist church,but think I read somewhere that has been demolished.Is that correct? If so what happened to to graves?once again. Thanks

Yes you’re right Haggate Chapel is no longer there, but the graves are.

Hi Nigel
We have images of gravestones in Briercliffe on the main site. I had switched them off (I am trying to build a new site and if I switch off what I have transferred, it makes it easier for me to come back to. Unfortunately the project is taking me an age as I am working more hours these days)
Anyway, Haggate can be found here http://www.briercliffesociety.co.uk/Grave%20Stones/Haggate%20Chapel.htm
Other Churchyards can be found here https://www.briercliffesociety.co.uk/Grave%20Stones.htm

Not searchable but indexed alphabetically and by no means complete!

There are also transcripts withing the forum. The forum search should help with those.

Thanks Mel
I have had a look at some of the grave stones and they relate to my family. I will go through all the pickles and see if I can link them to my family.
Thanks
Nigel

lan-opc has a good set of parish register for St James: http://lan-opc.org.uk/Burnley/Brierclif ... index.html
Plenty of Crabtrees and Pickleses.

They have records for many other churches in the area too, so it's worth casting your net a bit wider.

Good hunting!
Dave
