The DSCN numbers refer to digital photographs I took during my visits to the cemetery; the inscriptions were recorded in the format they appeared on the stones and in some cases the formatting of the transcriptions attemptes to reproduce a feel for the actual inscription. In time I will re-edit this into list format.

 Notes were never intended for public viewing but for help with later identification and cross referencing of photographs  and to this end proved invaluable - any descriptions of ornamentation or materials etc. are my own amateurish attempt.

Was I, as I am now yow
