The Bengal Presidency, extended from the North West Frontier Province to Burma, Singapore and Penang. Please Note: Burma, and the Straits Settlements indexes are located in the "Outside India" sub-category.
The indexes contained here consists of data offered by Institutions, Members, Scholars, Historians and others.
In 2017 FIBIS commissioned a photographer (Mr R Sharma) to take photographs and details of all legible headstones found in cemeteries within this Presidency. With these photographs, FIBIS volunteers went to work extracting the information found on the headstones, painstakingly transcribing them and creating this large (and mostly unique) index of names, dates and other information found on some headstones.
