The Cemetery Research Group (CRG) was established at the University of York in 1990 when a group of interdisciplinary academics secured funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) for research into local authorities and cemetery conservation.
Part of the Department of Social Policy and Social Work at the university, the CRG explores cemetery history and policy from c.1740 to the present in the UK and around the world and receives funding from the ESRC and local authorities. It also organises the annual Cemeteries Colloquium, which is held at King's Manor, York.
