Ancient Funeral Monuments - 1631


Cat No.:   GB0470:

A superb and very ancient book published in 1631 - gravestone & monumental inscriptions in churches in East Anglia, London, the home counties and the south east. Transcribed as they appeared in 1631 !!

Hundreds of these gravestones were destroyed during the Civil War of 1642.

The book is organised into dioceses and then the churches within each. The outer columns of each page contain the short references to the people whose gravestones appear. By nature, in this very early period, it was relatively unusual for a family to have a gravestone or monument. Some churches contain just a few, others contain many.

This very early and rare book is invaluable to genealogists. There is nothing else like it!
