Welcome to the Fearn Peninsula Graveyards. This site contains the Memorial Inscriptions for eight cemeteries within the Fearn Peninsula area.
The procedures involved in recording an older memorial
Turf around the edges of the Memorial, or Ledger as this type is known, is carefully cut away to reveal the edges and give some idea of the stone's depth.
Water helps to loosen soil and moss deposits which gather in the carved inscription and makes the lettering and features more legible.
As the lettering finally becomes clearer recordings can be made of the layout. It can take some time to read and even make sense of Memorials with this type of layout.
Finally the Ledger can be recorded. On the right is the record for this Memorial.
This is the same Memorial in 2006. With the inscription completely obscured.
Many Ledgers are very ornate with clearly visible inscriptions and symbols.
