Just like many other churches, Bradford Cathedral has over many centuries been the place where local families have come for the great moments in their lives; baptisms, weddings and funerals. Over the centuries we have diligently created a records of these moments. Sadly, we no-longer have the facilities to keep these precious records on site in the correct environmental conditions and many of them have now been moved to the West Yorkshire Archives who have both the facilities and expertise to maintain these records for prosperity.
