Family History Tours
A fascinating joint venture between Indusexperiences and BACSA, the British Association for Cemeteries in South Asia aims to use cemeteries as a means of increasing awareness of Britain’s contribution to the sub-continent’s heritage – and, at the same time to help travellers and tourists connect with their own family histories.
To quote: ‘Seeking fame or fortune, Britons first came to India more than 350 years ago. Some returned home as wealthy men. Many others, including soldiers, women and children left their bones here. Discover the life they led before they found their last resting place in India’.
Indusexperiences can arrange a tour, to personal or group specifications, not only for Remembrance of illustrious ancestors, but as a celebration of India and the indelible British link. Please contact Yasin on 020 8901 7320 for further details.
