Barnsley College students have uncovered 15 graves, including three war graves, at a Worsbrough church.
Over the past two months eight 'learning for living and work' students have been helping the The War Graves Photographic Project (TWGPP) to uncover graves which have been hidden by overgrown grass, bushes and foliage.
Three were found at St Thomas's Church on Bank End Road. The graves include an RAF pilot, a Private who served in the army and one containing a family of three - a father and his two sons who were both killed in action during First World War.
Student Michelle Cooper said: "I am really enjoying working on this project. It has made us all think about the war and the sacrifices that people have made for this country."
The graves have now been photographed and will be added to the TWGPP's website where individual causalities can be searched.
The project works with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to record and provide photos or digital images of the graves or memorial listings of every service casualty since the outbreak of the First World War.
Geoff and Marsha Thorndike, of the TWGPP, added: "We didn't have the resources to uncover the war graves so the students have done a fantastic job and we wouldn't have been able to take any photos without their help."
Work at the church is continuing where more graves are expected to be found. Vicki Austin, student support worker for the learning for living and work department, said the group was excited by what else it might find.
