Gravestone Transcriptions
Transcriptions and Photography by
Heather & Tony Carbis July 2009

A big thank you to my husband, Tony, for happily giving up a large chunk of our holiday time in Penwith to help with these

This is not a full transcription of the entire graveyard as time, in many ways, prevented this....  Firstly time, as in age, has allowed the elements to erode many stones leaving almost a smooth surface. Secondly, we have only transcribed those up to around the 1930's and thirdly, as I said, we were on our holiday lol!

The first 7 are the only gravestones I have photographs of
Following these are 4 views of the churchyard and then the written transcriptions
