Following many months of development Feather History is pleased to support a new independant Search Facility  for your ancestors who may be buried within the Keighley area since 1568.


This facility is available for all and not just dedicated to the Feather Surname.

Recent free trials have resulted in many successful searches which has helped Family History researchers to break through their 'brick wall'.   We hope that this new facility will help you to move forward with your research.

The information that will be sent (if available) is as follows:-

    • Surname,
    • Forename/s
    • Address from which they were buried
    • Date of Death
    • Date of Burial
    • Cemetery Section and Grave Number
    • Who is in the same grave.
    • Whether a memorial stone is in place

You will be notified by return email if a search has been successful together with a request for payment.  The standard search fee will be £3.00 with an option of further fees for photos (where available).  Payment is by Paypal and a link will be provided for payment.  Once this payment has been received you will get an email with all the details that are available.  No payment is required for an unsuccessful search.

The Database currently exceeds 600,000 records and is growing by the week.  Over 50% of the records are burials (the most difficult to find) and at present cover the following areas :

  • Keighley

  • Haworth

  • Stanbury

  • Oxenhope

  • Denholme

  • Wilsden

  • Cullingworth

  • Bingley

  • Oakworth

  • Cross Hills

  • Sutton-in-Craven

  • Bradley

  • Skipton

  • Silsden

  • Addingham

  • Ilkley

  • Trawden

  • Cowling

  • Cononley







Many more burial records are being added allowing a widening of the area covered. There are also some Baptism and Marriage records available but this has not been a priority to this point.
