Burial Grounds are an important part of our heritage.  They provide a wealth of information about our ancestors, which is useful to genealogists and historians.

As a bookmark in time, monuments and headstone inscriptions can give us a glipse into a past world, enabling us to understand lifestyles, occupations and social history which has shaped the way we live today.

As land space becomes an issue, old graves are reused with the original headstones removed and placed against a graveyard wall.  It is vital that we try to preserve as much of our heritage as we can and there are various projects around the world trying to do just that.

More and more people are trying to trace their family history and the aim of this site is to offer as much of the valuable information these headstones provide, helping with research, whilst keeping the information together in one place.
