Historic Lucknow, Delhi, etc.

We will be visiting India in late February and would like to see some of the Mutiny sites. If anyone knows of particularly well informed guides for Delhi and Lucknow please advise. Thanks.

Hi

I realise this was a long time ago but did you find any successful mutiny tours? I am spending a month in and around the Delhi, agra, locknow, cawnpor regions shortly and would like to hit all the obvious history spots and hopeful find some lesser known places too. Individual grave sites, remaining battle location etc etc.

All advice welcomed!

if you do not receive any suggestions here, if you are a Facebook member, you could perhaps ask on the FIBIS Facebook page.

Regarding the FIBIS Facebook page, I have now read that an associated Facebook page British India Family History Group has been established to make it easier for followers to post messages that can be seen by other followers.
Read about it in https://www.fibis.org/british-india-fam ... ook-group/. Contains a link to the new Facebook group.
