If you explore our churchyards and cemeteries today you will be astonished at how much you can discover, not only about the people who are buried there and their standing in the local community, but also about the history of this area.

Trevor Yorke explains burial practices down the ages and details the development of the churchard and the cemetery. He looks at the period styles of gravestones, tombs and memorials and the shapes and features that help to date them. Using a wide range of photographs and line illustrations, he examines the carvings and symbols that can be found and offers clues to their possible meanings.
