Memorials

I have always been fascinated by the tranquil beauty of our churchyards and cemeteries. The memorials placed there by family and friends are a direct link to those who went before us. They give an often touching glimpse into lives which would otherwise be forgotten.

Stone memorials are long lasting and often tell the story of a community. But they don’t last forever, and inscriptions are lost over time, or stones are removed because they become dangerous to passers by.

Here, I hope to record those memorials visible today, to preserve a transcript of the inscriptions, and an image of the stone.

Recording memorials is a time consuming task, and I’m grateful to all those who have been kind enough to photograph and record the images which are included here. Contributions are always welcome if you are passing and have the time to take a few pictures, preferably in a way the inscriptions are legible.

I have tried to research the names on the memorials below, so that we know at least a minimum about the families concerned. The maiden names of married women have been used where I can trace them. Otherwise, the married name is marked with an asterix.

The memorials are organised according to location, and you can filter each site by clicking the appropriate button. Otherwise, you can search by family name to locate memorials across all locations.
