British Association for Cemeteries in South Asia


imageBACSA, the British Association for Cemeteries in South Asia, was set up in 1976 to care for, and to record, European cemeteries wherever the East India Company set foot. It is estimated that some two million European men, women and children are buried in the Indian subcontinent alone.

Their aim is to make positive interventions in areas where there is a strong local base of people willing to restore European cemeteries, with financial aid from BACSA.  It is only by the impetus for restoration coming from the local community that there a chance that the old cemeteries will survive, and not relapse back into ruin and desolation in a few more years.
