British Association for Cemeteries in South Asia
BACSA - the British Association for Cemeteries in South Asia – was set up to bring together people with a concern for the many thousands of British and other European cemeteries, isolated graves and monuments in South Asia. An estimated two million Europeans and Anglo-Indians mainly British administrators, soldiers, merchants and their families - are buried in the Indian sub-continent alone. We record the locations of cemeteries and monuments, and the inscriptions on headstones. We publish in print and in free searchable databases on-line cemetery and church records containing names, inscriptions and biographical notes on individual tombs and gravestones. We support local people active in the restoration and conservation of European graveyards.
