Monumental Inscriptions

Tuesdays: 12 February; 12 March; 16 April; 14 May; 11 June; 16 July; 13 August; 10 September; 15 October; 12 November.

For further information of timings and how to volunteer please contact Garry at:

We clear the monuments of foliage, moss and general dirt so that they can be read then record what we can of the inscription, taking a photo of the monument. These are then transcribed into a word document for easier access. At some stage we will need to put all these inscriptions onto the website. Volunteers can choose how much time they want to devote to this work, so we welcome those only able to do a couple of hours rather than the whole day.

Please make a donation to help support their work.
