We present large field infrared images of a sample of 45 Herbig Ae/Be stars. Stellar parameters, such as age and luminosity, have been derived for all of them in a consistent way. The images have been used to identify stellar groups or clusters associated with the Herbig Ae/Be star. The results presented in this paper form the database for a study of clustering around intermediate mass stars (Testi et al. 1998).
