B) The surname of the person the memorial is to.
C) The area of the Chapel yard (East or West)
D) The Inscription. Some note of where the inscription lies on the memorial may be included. The end of each line of text is marked with / . A horizontal line on the memorial is marked as / -------- / . Illegible text is marked in sqaure brackest thus [illegible] .
E) A breif description of the type of memorial and sometimes mention of its condition.
F) The direction the inscription faces.

The database is to the best of our knowledge complete but has not been rigorously checked and inscriptions are sometimes difficult to read.
Webmasters may link to this site but PLEASE do not copy the database to any other site or include the information in any other database as updates and corrections would then be out of our control.
