Current Projects

The Society is continually engaged in Projects to make resource material more accessible to its Members and the general public. The Society is undertaking several projects to help the digitisation of local records etc …

  • WWI Project
  • Non-Conformist Chapel Registers
  • Tredworth Cemetery Burials
  • Gloucestershire BMD Indexing
  • Book of Incoming Vessels – Pilots List
  • Freemen of Gloucester
  • Gloucestershire Electoral Rolls 1931
  • Memorial Inscriptions 
    The Gloucestershire Family History Society are keen to continue and extend the Monumental Inscriptions project previously undertaken by Julian Rawes and his team.
    The project has been re-named Memorial Inscriptions as we aim to include war memorials as well as burial ground inscriptions within Gloucestershire.
    There are a number of burial grounds which have not been previously transcribed as well as ones which now need updating.  Similarly there are numerous village/parish war memorials which have not been recorded as well as memorials which may only be known to people in their local area.
    It is important that these inscriptions are not lost to us, and future generations, as the ravages of weather and time take their toll. If you would like to help by transcribing inscriptions or telling us of ‘obscure’ memorials, please contact John Williams at  memorials.gfhs@live.com

Offers of help from Volunteers is always welcome.
