Following on from our Graveyard Photographic Project, now 50% complete and from which we have over 44,000 photos, we have decided to launch a Graveyard Transcription Project.

Many people have asked how they can access these photos and by transcribing them we can update and correct our existing booklets and create new booklets.

This task will take longer than taking the photos owing to the difficulty of reading some stones. However, transcribing the photos can be done by anyone, world-wide, in the comfort of their own home on their own computer.

As we enter winter with wet days and dark nights, plus the possibility of a resurgence of Covid‑19, many of us will be looking for a way to keep busy.

How can I help?
