From FamilySearch Wiki
More than 14,000 Barbados tombstones are indexed at the free website Tombstones.bb. Many of those cited in books below also appear on this website.
Another good place to start is:
- Oliver, Vere Langford. The Monumental Inscriptions in the Churches and Churchyards of the Island of Barbados, British West Indies. London: Mitchell, Hughes, and Clarke, 1915. Digital version at Internet Archive; FHL Film 908155 Item 3; 1989 reprint: FHL Book 972.981 V3m.
An earlier work, which covers many Caribbean islands, includes Barbados:
- Laurence-Archer, James. Monumental Inscriptions of the British West Indies from the Earliest Date with Genealogical and Historical Annotations, from Original, Local and Other Sources, Illustrative of the Histories and Genealogies of the Seventeenth Century ... London: Chatto & Windus, 1875. FHL Film 283588; digital versions at DLOC; Internet Archive - both free.
For burials at the military cemetery, see:
- Gleadall, Mary E. Monumental Inscriptions in the Barbados Military Cemetery. Barbados: M. Gleadall, 2000. FHL Book 972.981 V3g.
Shilstone's work includes abstracts and translations of Jewish monuments dating back to the seventeenth century. He annotated the data with Jewish synagogue burial records:
- Shilstone, Eustace M. Monumental Inscriptions in the Burial Ground of the Jewish Synagogue at Bridgetown, Barbados. [New York, N.Y.]: American Jewish Historical Society, . FHL Book 972.981/B1 V3s.
The HaChayim HaYehudim Jewish Photo Library website maintains images of Bridgetown's Beth Hain Cemetery.
