FIBIS Indian Cemeteries Project

From the Families in British India Society (

FIBIS Cemeteries Project

FIBIS has hired a photographer who is currently visiting cemeteries in India and taking two photographs of every gravestone: one of the whole and one of the inscription. Mindful that many Indian cemeteries are in a dilapidated condition that is only going to deteriorate further, we are looking for sponsorship to enable us to continue this important project.

In the meantime, the photographer is receiving from FIBIS a modest fee and necessary expenses for travel. Therefore, if you would like access to the original photographs we are asking for a suggested donation of £3 (Three pounds sterling) for one image or £5 (Five Pounds sterling) for both.

Donate to the FIBIS cemeteries project

Please make any donations to the cemeteries project via the PayPal button on the Cemeteries Project page of the FIBIS website to ensure donation go to the correct project. If you are ordering photographs please quote the Cemetery and Image Reference that you require in the "Add special instructions to recipient" section of the "PayPal Review your payment" screen and we will arrange for e-mail copies of the photographs to be sent to you.

Cemeteries completed

Coming soon

Hopefully more cemeteries will be photographed, after the ones listed above, if we raise enough funds. Please make any donations to the FIBIS cemeteries project via the PayPal button on the Cemeteries Project page.
