Norfolk Gravestone Inscriptions Vol 3 This book is a follow up to Norfolk Gravestones Vol 2 and covers yet a whole new area of Norfolk from that of the last edition. In this volume you will find the following churches: - Dersingham Docking, Fring, Gt Bircham, Ingoldisthorpe, Sedgeford... , Shernborne, Snettisham, Stanhoe and Syderstone. There are well over 650 gravestone (tombstone) inscriptions that have been transcribed in this volume, hence more pages than that of the last 2 editions. This particular book has taken an exceptionally long to transcribe due to the condition of the gravestones, they were quite hard to read. This book is issued in the hope that it will at least archive many of these gravestones (tombstones, memorials or epitaphs) for others to see in years to come. These wonderful old tombstones are deteriorating at an alarming rate so at least I can say that I have recorded some of them for posterity, especially for families who are trying to research their own history here in Norfolk. The list consists mainly of inscriptions that are pre-1900's. Basically they are ones that are beginning fade with weathering, including some of those that had leaded lettering which has started to fall apart. As you can imagine, the work of transcribing these has taken me many, many hours and also lots of sleepless nights in order to preserve what's left of these wonderful pieces of social history. I do hope that you'll perhaps find some of your own families here in this book. Here are some of the names that are listed within the book: - Abra, Allpress, Awker, Balding, Beaver, Benn, Bullen, Chadwick, Collison, Covell, Dawes, Divers, Ellis, Etheridge, Fakenbridge, Folker, Gamble, Gutteridge, Hannack, Holland, Ives, Jarvis, Joice, Kelman, Lack, Linge, Macy, Mitchley, Neave, Nocell, Oughton, Parry, Pilgrim, Raker, Ringe, Sadler, Shilling, Taynton, Torvill, Utteridge, Wallace, Withers, Yallop and many, many more............. I do have a website where you are able to see the various churches that I have already transcribed, you are also able to contact me contact via my feedback page should you find a transcription of your ancestor. Just send me a line and I can let you know more about the digital photographs that are available.
