The Society has a project to photograph all gravestones in the northeast. This page records the current position.

Volunteers

We are always seeking volunteers.

  • Before starting any work please consult this page; and also contact the project coordinator (editor@ndfhs.org.uk)
  • The work involves photographing, and transcribing the stones. You do not have to do the whole work yourself; the work can be shared with others.
