Burial Grounds NBN Portal

As part of the Beautiful Burial Ground Project we partnered with the National Biodiversity Network (NBN) to create a Burial Grounds Portal on the NBN Atlas, an online tool that provides a platform to engage, educate and inform people about the natural world. The Burial Grounds portal is an extension of the NBN Atlas entirely devoted to burial grounds. Using the Burial Grounds Portal you can search for specific burial grounds, view burial grounds on a map, and view records. Visit the portal here

Church Heritage Record

We are partnering with Church Heritage Record (CHR); this online system contains over 16,000 entries on church buildings in England, covering a wide variety of topics from architectural history and archaeology, to the surrounding natural environment. The information contained within has been developed and added to through desk-based research and fieldwork reports, as well as through local initiatives and thematic projects.

CHR also records information about the lives and memories of local people. Church buildings have been the site of some of the most important moments in some people’s lives: their births, marriages, and deaths.

The National Biodiversity Network has been championing the sharing of biological data since 2000. They are the UK’s largest partnership for nature, with over 200 members and more than 219 million wildlife records available through the NBN Atlas.

iRecord

iRecord is a website for sharing wildlife observations, including associated photos – you can register quickly and for free. Once you’ve registered, you can add your own biological records for other to see, and you can see what has been recorded by others. Your data will be kept secure and will be regularly backed up. Automatic checks will be applied to your observations to help spot potential errors, and experts can review your sightings. All wildlife sightings for non-sensitive species are shared with other users and will be made available to National Recording Schemes, Local Record Centres and Vice County Recorders (VCRs).

The goal of iRecord is to make it easier for wildlife sightings to be collated, checked by experts and made available to support research and decision-making at local and national levels.
