Family History

The Family History Group was formed in 2008. It is a sub-group of the Hebden Bridge Local History Society and has links with the Calderdale Family History Society who were involved in its formation.

Family History Report February 2014

The aim of the group is to promote and assist the study of genealogy and family history, the prime interest being the study of people and where they live. It does this by offering members an opportunity to meet like-minded people locally and to share their interests, resources and experience. (More information)

We are currently transcribing  the gravestones in the Heptonstall Old Churchyard. This work was undertaken in the past by a group from the Local History Society under the leadership of Ken Stott. The results can be accessed on this website. There are still many graves to transcribe and we hope to complete this work soon.  We then hope to continue the task in other local graveyards. Anyone interested in joining this group please contact Barbara Atack.

Workshops and drop-in sessions are held in the Local History Society Archive Room at the Birchcliffe Centre on Thursdays and Saturdays respectively. Dates are listed below.

We suggest you contact Barbara Atack before coming in case there have been any changes to the scheduled opening times.

On Saturdays please use the green door at the side of the Birchcliffe Centre (Chapel Avenue side).
