Monumental Inscriptions

Our volunteers have been visiting cemeteries and graveyards for many years and transcribing the memorial stones.

Through our Research Service we have available a Surnames Index from which can be obtained a list of the requested Surname with the name of the Cemetery where the name is located. From that index we can give a full M. I. transcription for the requested Surname at the named Cemetery.

The transcriptions are in the process of being digitised and some can be searched on Findmypast at a very modest price (only pence). The remainder will be added in due course.

Use the following Search box to see whether transcriptions have been made in an area of interest to you. The (number) indicates how many transcriptions are available on Findmypast (updated 3rd February 2020).
