Gravestones are not all the same; the styles have changed over the years as has the type of lettering and the material used. Burial Grounds themselves have also changed and the history of many sites can give a valuable insight into the local area and the people who lived there.

This book, written by Bruce Bishop, former Chairperson of SAFHS, is full of information, photographs and drawings, which help us to understand more about the many aspects of burials grounds and not just what is written on the gravestone.

There is also information on how we can undertake recording tombstones safely, with no risk to ourselves or the stones.
