"On 11 July 2003 I photographed all the headstones in this graveyard and those which could not be captured on the camera were transcribed on paper. The inscriptions were taken down as carefully as possible and where the stone is badly worn and could barely be read it was traced with a finger and noted as accurately as possible. The manual inscriptions are below." Bobby
