Tombstones & Monumental Inscriptions

The aim of this site is to provide a photographic record of the various churches, churchyards, graveyards and cemeteries for the benefit of those genealogists who live some distance away.

I would welcome any photos of churches and tombstones (with transcripts of the inscriptions if possible) to use on this page.
If you are the webmaster of any church, churchyard, cemetery, or similar website that contains transcriptions of monuments and gravestones please contact me.
If you know the new location of any website marked - site down - or if you are the webmaster of any site so marked, please contact me giving the new location .

Please e-mail me at Guy Etchells

Press Control-D to bookmark this site.

If the link is Green this conveys that the site is down please advise of the new url if known.

Having now transferred the site to a server I can access I can now, at last, update the broken links.
I will be doing this over the next few weeks as time allows, starting from the top of the page.
Today I have updated the links as far as the Cornwall in the counties listings.
