SummaryOne off, occasional or regular help wanted with writing down monumental inscriptions from churchyards around Hertfordshire
We are looking for project assistants to help us 'record' the monumental inscriptions on graves in churchyards in Hertfordshire. We write these down and make them available as publications to family historians.
We will provide full training in reading the inscriptions, and full equipment required on the day to help read the inscription and clear the headstone of grass etc. All you will need is appropriate clothing for the time of year and appropriate footwear (parts of some churchyards may be overgrown with grass and nettles). You may also need transport to wherever we are recording.
Please contact us if this sounds like something you could contribute to. Perhaps you would like to help as a team/group charitable activity?
Get in touch for more information and to go on our contact list for our next monumental inscription day.
