The Railway Navvies of Settle by Sarah Lister. Settle Graveyard Project documents the lives of those buried since 1839 in the Graveyard at Holy Ascension Church, Settle. The project has been carried out by a team of volunteers led by Sarah Lister. It is a unique piece of work.

As part of the graveyard project, this book presents the colourful lives of the 20 navvies who worked on the Settle and Carlisle railway and are buried in the graveyard, many of them without gravestones. There are also many more children of navvies who died at this time and are buried there.
